The supplier of the * taxable supply must:

(a) within 28 days after the * recipient of the supply requests the supplier to give an * adjustment note for the * adjustment relating to the supply; or

(b) if the supplier has issued a * tax invoice in relation to the supply (or the recipient has requested one) and the supplier becomes aware of the adjustment before an adjustment note is requested - within 28 days after becoming aware of that fact;

give to the recipient an * adjustment note for the * adjustment , unless any * tax invoice relating to the supply would have been a * recipient created tax invoice (in which case it must be issued by the recipient).


However, in circumstances that the Commissioner determines in writing, paragraph (2)(b) has effect as if the number of days referred to in that paragraph is the number of days specified in the determination in relation to those circumstances.


Those circumstances may, for example, include the kind of the * taxable supply .
