Goods and Services Tax Ruling

GSTR 2009/2A2 - Addendum

Goods and services tax: partitioning of land


This Addendum is a public ruling for the purposes of the Taxation Administration Act 1953. It amends Goods and Services Tax Ruling GSTR 2009/2 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). Section 9-17 is now also referred to in the definition of 'consideration' as defined by section 195-1. The amendments apply to payments made on or after 1 July 2012.
