Step 1.

Work out the amount of GST (if any) that was payable on the supply, taking into account any previous * adjustments for the supply. This amount is the previous GST amount .


Step 2.

Add together:

  • (a) the amount or amounts previously written off as bad from the debt to which the increasing adjustment relates; and
  • (b) the amount of the debt that has been *overdue for 12 months or more (other than amounts already written off).

  • Step 3.

    Subtract the step 2 amount from the * price of the supply.


    Step 4.

    Add to the step 3 amount an amount equal to the amount or amounts, written off or overdue for 12 months or more, that have been recovered.


    Step 5.

    Work out the amount of GST (if any), taking into account any previous * adjustments for the supply (but not adjustments relating to bad debts or debts overdue), that would be payable on the supply if the * price of the supply were the step 4 amount. This amount of GST is the adjusted GST amount .


    Step 6.

    Subtract the previous GST amount from the adjusted GST amount.
