GST and tripartite arrangements - more than a 3-way dance

Published on 30 May 2007 | Took place at RACV Club, Melbourne, VIC

2006 will be seen to be a watershed year for GST because it will be the first time that the ATO has committed itself to assessing the GST impact of tripartite arrangements. The concept of a "supply" which is central to the way GST operates, was finally dealt with by the Commissioner 6 years after the GST commenced by issuing GSTR 2006/9.

Cases dealing with tripartite arrangements are only now starting to come through the court system and it will be some time before the Commissioner's views become settled law.

Author(s):  Rhys PENNING

This paper analyses in detail:

  • the concept of supply in the Australian GST system
  • how the courts and the ATO have interpreted the concept
  • how the Commissioner's views in GSTR 2006/9 can be applied in real life multi-party transactions.
