General requirements

             (2)  If you apply in accordance with subsection (1), the Commissioner must register you for entitlement to the grant or benefit if the Commissioner is satisfied that:

                     (a)  you satisfy any specific requirements set out in this section in relation to registration for that grant or benefit; and

                     (b)  you satisfy any prescribed conditions; and

                     (c)  if paragraph (d) does not apply—you have an ABN; and

                     (d)  if you do not have an ABN and are not entitled to have an ABN—you have provided evidence, of a kind determined by the Commissioner, of your identity and address.

Specific requirement for product stewardship (oil) benefits

          (3A)  The specific requirement in relation to registration for the product stewardship (oil) benefits is that the Commissioner is satisfied that you:

                     (a)  except in relation to registration for entitlement only for product stewardship (oil) benefits under subsection 9(3) of the Product Stewardship (Oil) Act 2000—are licensed to manufacture excisable goods under Part IV of the Excise Act 1901; and

                     (b)  except in relation to registration for entitlement only to product stewardship (oil) benefits under subsection 9(3) of the Product Stewardship (Oil) Act 2000—satisfy any regulations made under this paragraph in relation to:

                              (i)  compliance with relevant Commonwealth, State or Territory legislation relating to recycling operations or enterprises; and

                             (ii)  the signing of any prescribed Code of Practice relating to recycled oils; and

                     (a)  the refusal; and

                     (a)  the Commissioner has registered you for entitlement to a grant or benefit; and

                     (b)  you do not make a claim for that grant or benefit within any 13 month period beginning on or after the later of the day on which you are registered and 1 July 2000;

the Commissioner may cancel that registration.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  the Commissioner registers you for entitlement to a grant or benefit; and

                     (b)  after doing so, the Commissioner becomes satisfied that:

                              (i)  you did not, at the time you were registered, satisfy one or more of the requirements in section 9 for registration for entitlement to that grant or benefit; or

                             (ii)  you have ceased to satisfy one or more of those requirements;

the Commissioner may cancel that registration with effect from the time it took place or the time you ceased to satisfy the one or more requirements, as the case requires.

             (3)  The Commissioner must cancel your registration if you ask the Commissioner to do so.

             (4)  This section does not prevent you applying for fresh registration.

             (5)  If the Commissioner cancels your registration, the Commissioner must give you written notice of the cancellation.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  you receive an advance on account of a grant or benefit that may become payable; and

                     (b)  the amount of the advance is greater than the amount of the grant or benefit;

you are liable to repay the amount of the excess to the Commonwealth.

             (3)  If:

                     (a)  you receive an advance on account of a grant or benefit that may become payable; and

                     (b)  you do not make a claim for payment of the grant or benefit within 28 days after the end of the claim period concerned;

you are liable to repay the amount of the advance to the Commonwealth.

             (4)  An amount that you are liable to repay under this section is due and payable:

                     (a)  if subsection (2) applies—at the time that you make the claim for the grant or benefit in respect of which the advance was made; or

                     (b)  if subsection (3) applies—at the end of the period of 28 days referred to in that subsection.

             (5)  The Commissioner must not make an advance to an entity unless the entity has requested the Commissioner to make the advance. The amount of the advance must not exceed the amount requested by the entity.

15  Claims for grants or benefits

                     (b)  when informing you of that acceptance, the Commissioner must notify those terms and conditions to you.

             (4)  If the Commissioner rejects your application, the Commissioner must notify you of the rejection and specify the reasons why the application was rejected.

                     (a)  to make claims under section 15 on your behalf; and

                     (b)  for the purposes of making any such claim—to attach your electronic signature to claims so made.

             (6)  If a third party makes, or purports to make, a claim on your behalf under such an authority, the claim is to be treated, for all purposes of this Act, as a claim made by you under section 15.

             (7)  You may, at any time, revoke in writing an authorisation of a third party given under subsection (5).

             (8)  If you revoke an authorisation:

                     (a)  you must notify the Commissioner, in writing, of the fact of the revocation; and

                     (b)  the revocation only has effect when that notification is received by the Commissioner.

16  Further information

             (1)  This section applies to you if you have made a claim for a grant or benefit.

             (2)  The Commissioner may, within 28 days after the claim is made, request you to give the Commissioner, within the period specified in the request, further information about the claim.

             (3)  The Commissioner may refuse to consider the claim until you give the Commissioner the information.

17  Assessment

             (1)  This section applies to you if you have made a claim for a grant or benefit in respect of a claim period.

             (2)  The Commissioner must make an assessment of the amount of the grant or benefit to which you are entitled in respect of the claim period.

Note:          Under section 5, assessment includes a nil assessment.

18  Reliance by Commissioner on claim

             (1)  If you make a claim for a grant or benefit in respect of a claim period, the Commissioner may, for the purposes of making an assessment, accept (either in whole or in part):

                     (a)  a statement in the claim; and

                     (b)  any other statement otherwise made by you or on your behalf.

             (2)  In determining whether an assessment is correct, any determination, opinion or judgment of the Commissioner made, held or formed in connection with the consideration of an objection against the assessment is taken to have been made, held or formed when the assessment was made.

19  Commissioner must give you notice of an assessment

             (1)  Except where the assessment is that you are entitled to the full amount of the grant or benefit claimed, the Commissioner must give you notice of an assessment as soon as practicable after the assessment is made. However, failing to do so does not affect the validity of the assessment.

             (2)  The Commissioner may give you the notice electronically if you transmitted the relevant claim to the Commissioner in an electronic format.

             (3)  In all cases, the Commissioner may give you the notice in any other manner or form.

20  Amendment of assessment

             (1)  The Commissioner may at any time amend an assessment under this Part.

             (2)  An amended assessment is an assessment for all purposes of this Act.

             (3)  If, as a result of an amended assessment, you are liable to pay an amount to the Commissioner, the amount is taken to have become due and payable at the time that the original assessment was made.

21  Request for amended assessment

             (1)  You may request the Commissioner in the approved form to make an amended assessment.

             (2)  The Commissioner must comply with the request if it is made within:

                     (a)  2 years after the end of the claim period; or

                     (b)  such further period as the Commissioner allows.

23  Payment of grants or benefits

             (1)  If you are entitled to a grant or benefit in respect of a claim period:

                     (a)  the grant or benefit is a debt due to you by the Commissioner on behalf of the Commonwealth; and

                     (b)  you may recover the grant or benefit by action in a court of competent jurisdiction.

             (2)  Grant or benefits are payable by the Commonwealth in the manner determined by the Commissioner.

24  Recovery by set‑off

                   If an entity is liable to pay a scheme debt, the scheme debt may be deducted from one or more grants or benefits that are payable to the entity, and if the scheme debt is so deducted, the grant or benefit is taken to have been paid in full to the entity.

24A  Interest on underpaid grants or benefits

             (1)  Interest is payable by the Commissioner to a person in respect of an amount of grant or benefit that becomes payable to the person if:

                     (a)  the amount relates to a grant or benefit for a claim period; and

                     (b)  the amount is payable as a result of a decision to which this section applies (the review decision).

             (2)  The interest is to be calculated for the period (the interest period):

                     (a)  starting on the day on which the original assessment in relation to the grant or benefit was made; and

                     (b)  ending on the day on which the amount is paid or applied by the Commissioner.

             (3)  The following method statement shows how to work out the interest (which is calculated on a daily basis):

Calculating the interest payable

Step 1.     Work out the amount that is determined by the review decision to be the amount of the grant or benefit payable in relation to the claim period.

Step 2.    For each day in the interest period, work out the amount of the grant or benefit that had been paid or applied by the Commissioner on or before that day (reduced by any amounts repaid before that day by the person).

Step 3.     For each day in the interest period, subtract the amount worked out in step 2 from the amount worked out in step 1. If the result is negative, it is taken to be nil.

Step 4.    For each day in the interest period, multiply the amount worked out in step 3 by the base interest rate for the day (expressed as a daily rate).

Step 5.      Add all of the amounts worked out under step 4.

             (4)  In this section:

base interest rate for a day has the same meaning as in section 8AAD of the Taxation Administration Act 1953.

decision to which this section applies means:

                     (a)  a decision under Part IVC of the Taxation Administration Act 1953 upon an objection relating to a grant or benefit; or

                     (b)  a decision of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal in relation to an objection mentioned in paragraph (a); or

                     (c)  a decision of a court in relation to:

                              (i)  an objection mentioned in paragraph (a); or

                             (ii)  a decision of the kind mentioned in paragraph (b).

Part 5Record‑keeping requirements etc.

  

25  No entitlement to grants or benefits unless record‑keeping requirements met

             (1)  Despite the provisions of Part 3 and the entitlement Acts:

                     (a)  you are not entitled to a grant or benefit in respect of a particular claim period unless you comply with the pre‑claim record‑keeping requirements set out in section 26; and

                     (b)  if you have made a claim for a grant or benefit in respect of a particular claim period—you are not entitled, and are taken never to have been entitled, to the grant or benefit in respect of that claim period unless you have complied with the post‑claim record‑keeping requirements set out in section 27.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  you make a claim for a grant or benefit in respect of a claim period; and

                     (b)  you make a statement in the claim to the effect that you undertake to comply with the post‑claim record‑keeping requirements set out in section 27;

the Commissioner may, for the purposes of making an assessment, assume that you will comply with those requirements. However, if you do not comply with those requirements, the Commissioner may amend your assessment under section 20.

26  Pre‑claim record‑keeping requirements

             (1)  This section sets out the pre‑claim record‑keeping requirements that apply to you in relation to a grant or benefit in respect of a particular claim period.

             (2)  You must:

                     (a)  keep records that enable you to substantiate your claim for the grant or benefit; and

                     (b)  retain those records until you make the claim.

Note:          Section 27 provides that you must continue to retain those records for 5 years after you make the claim.

             (3)  The records must be:

                     (a)  in English; or

                     (b)  readily accessible, and easily convertible into English.

             (4)  You are taken to have met the requirement set out in paragraph (2)(a) if you keep records of a kind, and in a manner, specified in a written determination made by the Commissioner.

Note:          Sections 8L, 8Q and 8T of the Taxation Administration Act 1953 deal with keeping records incorrectly.

27  Post‑claim record‑keeping requirements

             (1)  This section sets out the post‑claim record‑keeping requirements that apply to you in relation to a grant or benefit in respect of a particular claim period.

          (1C)  The records must be:

                     (a)  in English; or
