The Commissioner may make a written determination that an entity is not required to comply with the record keeping requirements set out in sections 15 and 16 in relation to a specified Coronavirus economic response payment in respect of a period.

However, if:


(a) the Commissioner makes a decision under this Act that the entity is entitled to the payment; and


(b) the entity does not comply with the requirements referred to in subsection (5);

then:
