reflect the following changes to the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999:

the substitution of the term 'community care' with the term 'home care' in section 38-30 by the Aged Care (Living Longer Living Better) Act 2013, effective from 1 August 2013, and
the insertion of section 38-38 by the Tax Laws Amendment (2013 Measures No. 2) Act 2013, which applies to supplies made on or after 1 July 2013.

(a) Omit from the first sentence the words 'community care'; substitute 'home care'.

(b) After the first sentence; insert footnote 55B:
