Chapter 4 - The special rules  

Part 4-6 - Special rules mainly about tax periods  


The special rules in this Part mainly modify the operation of Part 2-6 , but they may affect other Parts of Chapter 2 in minor ways.

Division 153 - Agents etc. and insurance brokers  

Subdivision 153-A - General  

153-15   Tax invoices  

If you make a * taxable supply through an agent, an obligation to issue a * tax invoice relating to the supply:

(a) arises whether the * recipient makes a request for a tax invoice to you or the agent; and

(b) is complied with if either you or the agent gives the recipient a tax invoice within 28 days after the request.

However, you and the agent must not both issue separate * tax invoices relating to the supply.


If Subdivision 153-B is to apply to the supply, there will be an arrangement under which only your agent can issue the tax invoice: see paragraph 153-50(1)(d) .

This section has effect despite section 29-70 (which is about tax invoices).
