Goods and services tax: prizes


This Addendum is a public ruling for the purposes of the Taxation Administration Act 1953. It amends Goods and Services Tax Ruling GSTR 2002/3 to:

reflect the amendments to the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 (GST Act) which were made by Tax and Superannuation Laws Amendment (2012 Measures No. 1) Act 2012. In particular it reflects the amendment that inserted section 9-17 into the GST Act. Section 9-17 contains exclusions from the meaning of 'consideration' formerly contained in subsection 9-15(3).
