A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999

Chapter 4 - The special rules  

Part 4-1 - Special rules mainly about particular ways entities are organised  


The special rules in this Part mainly modify the operation of Part 2-2 so far as that Part deals with liability for GST and entitlement to input tax credits, but the special rules also affect other aspects of Part 2-2 and the other Parts of Chapter 2 .

Division 48 - GST groups  

Subdivision 48-B - Consequences of GST groups  

48-60   GST returns  

If you are a * member of a * GST group during the whole of a tax period, you are not required to give to the Commissioner a * GST return for that tax period, unless you are the * representative member of the group during that period.


If you were not a member of a GST group during the whole of a tax period, you are still obliged to give a GST return for the tax period, and (because of section 48-51 ) your net amount for the tax period will take into account your liabilities and entitlements relating to the one or more parts of the tax period during which you were not a member.

This section has effect despite section 31-5 (which is about who must give GST returns).
