(a) the instalment period is taken to be a financial year;


(b) the amounts taken by subsections 33(3) , 34(3) , 34A(4) , 35(3) and 36(1) (including because of section 48 ) to be incurred by any person in relation to any project on the first day of the financial year are instead taken to be only the instalment percentages of those amounts;


(c) the amounts that would, for the purposes of Schedule 1 , be the incurred exploration expenditure amounts in relation to financial years before that financial year are instead taken to be only the instalment percentages of those amounts.

(a) in relation to a later instalment period; or


(b) in relation to the financial year or a later financial year (as an annual transfer).
