Taxation Administration Act 1953
Note: See section 3AA .Chapter 4 - Generic assessment, collection and recovery rules
This section applies to a statutory declaration given, or an affidavit filed, for the purposes of section 268-40 or 268-45 in relation to the estimate. Content 268-90(2)
In a case covered by paragraph 268-10(1)(a) (estimate of liability under requirement to pay to the Commissioner amounts you have withheld under the Pay as you go withholding rules), the statutory declaration or affidavit must verify the following facts:
(a) whichever of the following are applicable:
(i) the sum of all amounts you withheld under Division 12 during the relevant period, or the fact that you did not withhold any such amounts during the period;
(ii) the sum of all amounts you were required to pay under Division 13 (Alienated personal services payments) during the relevant period, or the fact that you were not required to pay any such amounts during the period;
(iii) the sum of all amounts you were required to pay under Division 14 (non-cash benefits and accruing gains) during the relevant period, or the fact that you were not required to pay any such amounts during the period;
(b) what has been done to comply with Division 16 (Payer ' s obligations and rights) in relation to the amounts referred to in paragraph (a).
In a case covered by paragraph 268-10(1)(b) (estimate of liability to pay superannuation guarantee charge), the statutory declaration or affidavit must verify the following facts:
(a) your name and address;
(b) for each employee for whom you have an * individual superannuation guarantee shortfall for the relevant * quarter:
(i) the employee ' s name and postal address and, if the employee has * quoted the employee ' s * tax file number to you, the employee ' s tax file number; and
(ii) the amount of the shortfall;
(c) what has been done to comply with your obligation to pay the relevant superannuation guarantee charge to the Commissioner.
The amount of the individual superannuation guarantee shortfall mentioned in paragraph (b) is a factor in determining the amount of the superannuation guarantee charge mentioned in paragraph 268-10(1)(b) . The lesser amount mentioned in subsection 268-40(2) may therefore differ from the amount of that shortfall.
In a case covered by paragraph 268-10(1)(c) (estimate of liability in relation to net amount under GST Act), the statutory declaration or affidavit must verify the following facts:
(a) your *net amount for the *tax period;

(c) your *taxable supplies and *creditable acquisitions that are attributable to that tax period;
(d) your assessable dealings (within the meaning of the *Wine Tax Act) and *wine tax credits that are attributable to that tax period.
