Part 2-4 - Net amounts and adjustments  

Division 19 - Adjustment events  

Subdivision 19-C - Adjustments for acquisitions  

19-70   Where adjustments for acquisitions arise  

You have an adjustment for an acquisition for which you are entitled to an input tax credit (or would be entitled to an input tax credit if the acquisition were a * creditable acquisition ) if:

(a) in relation to the acquisition, one or more * adjustment events occur during a tax period; and

(b) an input tax credit on the acquisition was attributable to an earlier tax period (or, if the acquisition was not a creditable acquisition, would have been attributable to an earlier tax period had the acquisition been a creditable acquisition); and

(c) as a result of those adjustment events, the * previously attributed input tax credit amount for the acquisition (if any) no longer correctly reflects the amount of the input tax credit (if any) on the acquisition (the corrected input tax credit amount ).


In working out the * corrected input tax credit amount for the acquisition:

(a) take into account any change of circumstances that has given rise to an adjustment for the acquisition under this Subdivision or Division 21 , 129 , 133 or 134 ; and

(b) if an adjustment relating to the acquisition under Division 131 was attributable to an earlier tax period:

(i) do not take into account that adjustment; and

(ii) treat the acquisition as one in relation to which Division 131 had not applied.
