A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999
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 60 - Pre-establishment costs 60-5 Input tax credit for acquisitions and importations before establishment (1)
If you make a * creditable acquisition that is a * pre-establishment acquisition , or a * creditable importation that is a * pre-establishment importation , relating to a * company before it is in existence:
(a) you are not entitled to the input tax credit on the acquisition or importation; and
