the recipient of the benefit shall be deemed to be an associate of the employee for the purposes of the application of this Act in relation to the provision of that benefit.148(2A) [ Gifts or contributions]

the provider shall be deemed, for the purposes of this Act, to have provided that benefit in respect of that employment.148(4) [Employment benefits deemed provided]

A provision of this Act that deems a benefit to have been provided in particular circumstances shall not, by implication, limit the meaning of the expression provide when used in relation to the provision of a benefit in other circumstances.
