Chapter 4 - The special rules  

Part 4-4 - Special rules mainly about net amounts and adjustments  

Note:

Division 142 - Excess GST  

Subdivision 142-A - Excess GST unrelated to adjustments  

142-5   When this Subdivision applies  

(1)  
This Subdivision applies if, after disregarding any amounts covered by subsection (2), your *assessed net amount for a tax period takes into account an amount of GST exceeding that which is payable.

Note:

This Subdivision applies whether or not you have paid, or been refunded, the assessed net amount.

Example:

Sunny Co mistakenly reports a negative net amount of $4,000 made up of GST of $10,000 less input tax credits of $14,000. In fact, Sunny Co ' s GST should have been $8,000 making its negative net amount $6,000. Sunny Co has excess GST of $2,000.

(2)  
Disregard the following amounts:


(a) an amount of GST that was correctly payable and attributable to the tax period, but which later becomes the subject of a *decreasing adjustment;


(b) an amount of GST that is payable, but is correctly attributable to a different tax period;


(c) an amount of GST to which section 142-16 (about low value goods) applies.
