A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999

Chapter 2 - The basic rules  

Part 2-2 - Supplies and acquisitions  

Division 9 - Taxable supplies  

Subdivision 9-A - What are taxable supplies?  

9-15   Consideration  

(1)  
Consideration includes:


(a) any payment, or any act or forbearance, in connection with a supply of anything; and


(b) any payment, or any act or forbearance, in response to or for the inducement of a supply of anything.

(2)  
It does not matter whether the payment, act or forbearance was voluntary, or whether it was by the * recipient of the supply.

(2A)  


It does not matter:


(a) whether the payment, act or forbearance was in compliance with an order of a court, or of a tribunal or other body that has the power to make orders; or


(b) whether the payment, act or forbearance was in compliance with a settlement relating to proceedings before a court, or before a tribunal or other body that has the power to make orders.

(2B)  


For the avoidance of doubt, the fact that the supplier is an entity of which the * recipient of the supply is a member, or that the supplier is an entity that only makes supplies to its members, does not prevent the payment, act or forbearance from being consideration.

(3)  
(Repealed by No 75 of 2012)
