Division 141 - Tradex scheme goods
141-1 What this Division is about
The holder of a tradex order has an increasing adjustment if goods relating to that order are dealt with contrary to the Tradex Scheme.
Note: GST would not have been payable on importation of the goods under the Tradex Scheme: see section 42-5.
141-5 Adjustments for applying goods contrary to the Tradex Scheme
(1) You have an increasing adjustment if:
(a) you import *tradex scheme goods; and
(b) you are the holder (within the meaning of the Tradex Scheme Act 1999) of the *tradex order relating to the goods; and
(c) the importation would have been a *taxable importation if the goods had not been covered by item 21A of Schedule 4 to the Customs Tariff Act 1995 at the time of their entry for home consumption under the Customs Act 1901; and
(d) any of the circumstances referred to in subsection 21(1) of that Act occur in respect of any of the goods.
However, the increasing adjustment only arises in relation to the first occurrence of such a circumstance following an importation of the goods.
(2) The amount of the *increasing adjustment is the difference between:
(a) the amount of GST that would have been payable on the importation if the importation had been a *taxable importation; and
(b) the amount (if any) of the input tax credit to which you would have been entitled for the importation if the importation had been a taxable importation.
