This article examines the situation in which a purchaser, purchased an older house believing that GST would not be included in the sale price. Unknown to the purchaser, the house had been rented by the previous owner to a tenant who used the house for commercial office accommodation and was required to register for GST. The purchaser sought a private ruling. This article examines the content of the ruling by reference to the reasoning which now appears as a draft GST ruling.
