If you have a *decreasing adjustment relating to a supply made by you through an agent or made to you through an agent, an obligation under subsection 29-75(2) to issue an *adjustment note for the adjustment, or an obligation under subsection 134-20(2) to issue a *third party adjustment note for the adjustment:

(a) arises whether the *recipient makes a request for an adjustment note or a third party adjustment note to you or the agent; and

(b) is complied with if either you or your agent gives the recipient an adjustment note or a third party adjustment note within 28 days after the request.


However, you and the agent must not both issue separate *adjustment notes or *third party adjustment notes for the adjustment.


This section has effect despite sections 29-75 (which is about adjustment notes) and 134-20 (which is about third party adjustment notes).
