SECTION 268-80   EFFECT OF PAYING THE GENERAL INTEREST CHARGE  

Scope

268-80(1)  
If you are liable to pay the *general interest charge under section 268-75 in relation to the estimate, this section applies to the following liabilities:


(a) your liability to pay the general interest charge;


(b) a liability of yours to pay a general interest charge, under a corresponding provision of Subdivision 16-B , because the underlying liability remains undischarged;


(c) liability under a judgment, to the extent that it is based on a liability referred to in paragraph (a) or (b);


(d) a liability of yours to pay interest carried by a judgment debt, to the extent that the judgment debt is based on:


(i) the liability to pay the estimate; or

(ii) the liability to pay the general interest charge under section 268-75 on an unpaid amount of the estimate.

268-80(1A)  


In a case covered by paragraph 268-10(1)(c) (estimate of liability in relation to net amount under GST Act), treat the reference in paragraph (1)(b) to the underlying liability as being a reference to a liability under Division 33 or 35 of the *GST Act for an *assessed net amount in respect of the underlying liability. Discharging one liability discharges other liabilities

268-80(2)  
If, at a particular time, an amount is paid or applied towards discharging one of the liabilities, each of the other liabilities that is in existence at that time is discharged to the extent of the same amount.

268-80(3)  
However, this section does not discharge a liability to a greater extent than the amount of the liability.

268-80(4)  
If, because a judgment debt carries interest, section 8AAH of this Act reduces the amount of a *general interest charge payable as mentioned in paragraph (1)(b) of this section, the amount of the reduction is taken, for the purposes of subsection (2) of this section, to have been applied towards discharging your liability to the charge.
