98 After Division 99
Division 100 - Vouchers
100-1 What this Division is about
A supply of a voucher for supplies up to a stated monetary value is not subject to GST. GST may still be payable on the supply for which the voucher is redeemed, and there is an increasing adjustment for unredeemed vouchers.
Note: Vouchers that do not state a monetary value can be subject to GST when supplied, but the price of the voucher is excluded when working out the GST on the supply for which the voucher is redeemed (see paragraph 9-15(3)(a)).
100-5 Supplies of vouchers stating monetary value
(1) A supply of a *voucher is not a *taxable supply if:
(a) on redemption of the voucher, the holder of the voucher is entitled to supplies up to a monetary value stated on the voucher; and
(b) the *consideration for supply of the voucher does not exceed that monetary value.
(2) If the *consideration for supply of the voucher exceeds that monetary value, the consideration is treated (except for the purposes of this section) as if it were reduced by that monetary value.
(3) This section has effect despite section 9-5 (which is about what are taxable supplies) and section 9-15 (which is about consideration).
100-10 Redemption of vouchers
(1) The act of redeeming a *voucher is not a supply.
Note: A supply for which the voucher is redeemed is still a supply.
(2) Subsection (1) has effect despite section 9-10 (which is about what is a supply).
(3) Paragraph 9-15(3)(a) (which is about the consideration for exercising rights or options) does not apply to a right or option that is granted by way of a *voucher if, on redemption of the voucher, the holder of the voucher is entitled to supplies up to a monetary value stated on the voucher.
100-15 Increasing adjustments for unredeemed vouchers
(1) You have an increasing adjustment if:
(a) you supplied a *voucher for *consideration; and
(b) on redemption of the voucher, the holder of the voucher was entitled to supplies up to a monetary value stated on the voucher; and
(c) the voucher has not been redeemed; and
(d) you have, for accounting purposes, written back to current income any reserves for the redemption of the voucher.
(2) The amount of the increasing adjustment is 1/11 of the amount written back to current income.
100-20 Vouchers supplied to non-residents and redeemed by others in Australia
This Division does not apply to a *voucher supplied to a *non-resident if, because of the application of subsection 38-190(3), the supply is not *GST-free.
100-25 Meaning of voucher
A voucher is any voucher, token, stamp, coupon or similar article the redemption of which in accordance with its terms entitles the holder to receive supplies in accordance with its terms. However, a postage stamp is not a voucher.
