GST that is payable on any * taxable supply an entity makes and that is attributable to a tax period during which the entity is a * member of a * GST group :


(a) is payable by the * representative member ; and


(b) is not payable by the entity that made it (unless the entity is the representative member).

GST that is payable on any *taxable importation an entity makes while the entity is a *member of a *GST group :


(a) is payable by the *representative member ; and

(2)  
However:


(a) a supply that an entity makes to another * member of the same * GST group is treated as if it were not a * taxable supply , unless:


(i) it is a taxable supply because of section 84-5 (which is about offshore supplies); or

(ii) the entity is a participant in a * GST joint venture and acquired the thing supplied from the * joint venture operator for the joint venture; and


(b) this section only applies to GST payable on a * taxable importation made, by a member of the GST group other than the * representative member , if the GST on the importation is payable at a time when GST on * taxable supplies is normally payable by the representative member.

(3)  
This section has effect despite sections 9-40 and 13-15 (which are about liability for GST).
