Abstract:

In the 2009-10 Budget the Government announced its response to the Board of Taxation's review of the legal framework for the administration of the GST. Most substantial changes will apply from 1 July 2010. Some of these measures are subject to the unanimous agreement of the States and Territories.

To assist with the implementation of the measures, Treasury has prepared the attached discussion paper which provides implementation information on a number of the measures. Further discussion papers on remaining recommendations will become available over coming weeks.

Interested parties are invited to comment  on all or some of the recommendations addressed in the paper. While submissions may be lodged electronically or by post, electronic lodgement is preferred. For accessibility reasons, please submit responses sent via email in a Word or RTF format. An additional PDF version may also be submitted.

All information (including name and address details) contained in submissions will be made available to the public on the Treasury website unless you indicate that you would like all or part of your submission to remain in confidence.

A request made under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Commonwealth) for a submission marked 'confidential' to be made available will be determined in accordance with that Act.
