105-60   Reliance on Commissioner’s interpretation of an indirect tax law (other than a fuel tax law)

             (1)  This section applies to you if:

                     (a)  the Commissioner alters a previous * indirect tax ruling that applied to you; and

                     (b)  relying on the previous ruling, you have underpaid a * net amount or an amount of * indirect tax, or the Commissioner has overpaid an amount under section 35-5 of the * GST Act, in respect of one or more:

                              (i)  * taxable supplies or * taxable importations; or

                             (ii)  * wine taxable dealings; or

                            (iii)  * taxable supplies of luxury cars or * taxable importations of luxury cars; or

                            that happened before the alteration.

Note:          For reliance on the Commissioner’s interpretation of a fuel tax law, see Division 357.

             (2)  Unless the Commissioner is satisfied that you contributed to the giving, or continuing in force, of the earlier ruling by a misstatement or by suppressing a material fact:

                     (a)  the underpaid * net amount or * indirect tax ceases to be payable; or

                     (b)  the overpaid amount under section 35-5 of the * GST Act is taken to have been payable in full;

from when the previous ruling was made.

             (3)  In deciding whether an * indirect tax ruling applies to you, or whether a ruling has been altered:

                     (a)  a * private indirect tax ruling applies only to the entity to whom it was given; and

                     (b)  so far as a private indirect tax ruling conflicts with an earlier * public indirect tax ruling, the private indirect tax ruling prevails; and

                     (c)  so far as a public indirect tax ruling conflicts with an earlier private indirect tax ruling, the public indirect tax ruling prevails; and

                     (d)  an alteration that a later indirect tax ruling makes to an earlier indirect tax ruling is disregarded so far as the alteration results from a change in the law that came into operation after the earlier indirect tax ruling was given.

105-65   Restriction on refunds

             (1)  The Commissioner need not give you a refund to which this section applies, or apply an amount under Division 3 or 3A of Part IIB to which this section applies, if:

                     (a)  you overpaid the amount, or the amount was not refunded to you, because a * supply was treated as a * taxable supply to any extent; and

                     (b)  the supply is not a taxable supply to that extent (for example, because it is * GST-free); and

                     (c)  one of the following applies:

                              (i)  the Commissioner is not satisfied that you have reimbursed a corresponding amount to the recipient of the supply;

                             (ii)  the recipient is * registered or * required to be registered.

Note:          Divisions 3 and 3A of Part IIB deal with payments, credits and RBA surpluses.

             (2)  This section applies to:

                     (b)  so much of any net amount that is payable to you under section 35-5 of the * GST Act as the Commissioner has not paid to you or applied under Division 3 of Part IIB of this Act.

Note:          Division 3 of Part IIB deals with payments, credits and RBA surpluses.

105-85   Amending Acts cannot impose penalties or general interest charge earlier than 28 days after Royal Assent

             (1)  An Act that amends an * indirect tax law does not have the effect of making you liable to:

                     (a)  a penalty for an offence against an indirect tax law; or

                     (b)  * general interest charge under section 105-80;

for any act or omission that happens before the 28th day (the postponed day ) after the day on which the amending Act receives the Royal Assent.

             (2)  If the amending Act would (apart from this section) have the effect of making you liable to such a penalty or charge because you contravened a requirement to do something:

                     (a)  within a specified period ending before the postponed day; or

                     (b)  before a specified time happening before the postponed day;

the requirement has effect instead by reference to a period ending at the start of the postponed day, or by reference to the start of the postponed day, as the case requires.

             (3)  This section does not relieve you from liability to such a penalty or charge to the extent to which the liability would have existed if the amending Act had not been enacted.
