(b) the * consideration for:

(i) if your acquisition was not an acquisition from a * member of a * GST group of which you were also a member at the time of the acquisition - the earlier supply; or

(ii) if your acquisition was such an acquisition - the last supply of the interest, unit or lease at a time when the supplier of that last supply was not, but the * recipient of that last supply was, a member of the GST group;
