Exposure Draft - GST Treatment of New Residential Premises


Friday, 23 September 2011

Content ID:



The 2011-12 Budget included a measure to amend the goods and services tax (GST) law to protect the GST revenue base and to ensure the law applies appropriately to supplies of new residential premises.

Following public consultation on the policy design of these changes earlier in the year, the Government has developed draft legislation to implement this measure.

The Assistant Treasurer has released exposure draft legislation and explanatory material for public consultation. The draft legislation seeks to address some of the issues arising from public consultation.
