A person contravenes this subsection if:


(a) the person is required to cause a notice to be lodged under a notice provision; and


(b) the person fails to cause the notice to be lodged in accordance with that provision.

Note: A notice must be lodged in accordance with section 922L in order to be lodged in accordance with a notice provision (see subsection (1) of the notice provision).

However, subsection (1) does not apply if:


(a) the person fails to cause the notice to be lodged in accordance with section 922D ; and


(b) the only reason the person fails to cause the notice to be lodged in accordance with that section is because the information referred to in paragraph 922F(1)(h) , (l) or (m) is not included in the notice; and


(c) subsection 922F(3) provides that the notice does not need to include that information.
