Division 255 - General rules about collection and recovery  

Subdivision 255-D - Security deposits  

SECTION 255-100   COMMISSIONER MAY REQUIRE SECURITY DEPOSIT  

255-100(1)  
The Commissioner may require you to give security for the due payment of an existing or future *tax-related liability of yours if:


(a) the Commissioner has reason to believe that:


(i) you are establishing or *carrying on an *enterprise in Australia; and

(ii) you intend to carry on that enterprise for a limited time only; or


(b) the Commissioner reasonably believes that the requirement is otherwise appropriate, having regard to all relevant circumstances.

Note:

A requirement to give security under this section is not a tax-related liability. As such, the collection and recovery provisions in this Part do not apply to it.

255-100(2)  
The Commissioner may require you to give the security:


(a) by way of a bond or deposit (including by way of payments in instalments); or


(b) by any other means that the Commissioner reasonably believes is appropriate.

255-100(3)  
The Commissioner may require you to give security under this section:


(a) at any time the Commissioner reasonably believes is appropriate; and


(b) as often as the Commissioner reasonably believes is appropriate.

Example:

The Commissioner may require additional security if he or she reasonably believes that the original security requirement underestimated the amount of the likely tax-related liability.
