19 Nov 077 Decision Impact Statement - Food SupplierThe ATO has published a Decision Impact Statement in relation to Food Supplier and FCT  AATA 1550; 2007 ATC 157. The case concerned the supply of a GST-free food product packaged with a non-food product for a single price and whether GST was payable on the supply of the non-food product. The AAT found against the taxpayer and held that the supply of the non-food product was taxable and that the AAT had no jurisdiction to entertain the application to remit GIC. The ATO states that the decision of the AAT is consistent with the views expressed by the Commissioner in GSTR 2001/8 entitled "apportioning the consideration for a supply that includes taxable and non-taxable parts".
