Classes of Tax Invoices that may be issued by the recipient of a taxable supply

3.                  A tax invoice that belongs to a class of tax invoices for a taxable supply of licensing may be issued by a recipient of that supply where the recipient:

(ii)        satisfies the requirements set out in Clause 5.

Requirements that must be satisfied by a recipient of a taxable supply

(b)       the recipient must set out in the tax invoice the ABN of the supplier;

(c)        the recipient must issue the original or a copy of the tax invoice to the supplier within 28 days of making, or determining, the value of a taxable supply and must retain the original or the copy;

(d)       the recipient must issue the original or a copy of an adjustment note to the supplier within 28 days of the adjustment and must retain the original or the copy;

(e)               the recipient must reasonably comply with its obligations under the taxation laws;

(f)                 the recipient must have either:

·        a written agreement with the supplier specifying the supplies to which it relates, that is current and effective when the RCTI is issued, agreeing that:

(i)                 the recipient can issue tax invoices in respect of the supplies;

(ii)               the supplier will not issue tax invoices in respect of the supplies;

(iii)             the supplier acknowledges that it is registered for GST when it enters into the agreement and that it will notify the recipient if it ceases to be registered; and

(iv)              the recipient acknowledges that it is registered when it enters into the agreement and that it will notify the supplier if it ceases to be registered for GST; or

·        an agreement with the supplier embedded in an RCTI it issues that contains the following statement:

The recipient and the supplier declare that this agreement applies to supplies to which this tax invoice relates. The recipient can issue tax invoices in respect of these supplies. The supplier will not issue tax invoices in respect of these supplies. The supplier acknowledges that it is registered for GST and that it will notify the recipient if it ceases to be registered. The recipient acknowledges that it is registered for GST and that it will notify the supplier if it ceases to be registered for GST. Acceptance of this RCTI constitutes acceptance of the terms of this written agreement.

Both parties to this supply agree that they are parties to an RCTI agreement. The supplier agrees to notify the recipient if the supplier does not wish to accept the proposed agreement within 21 days of receiving this document.

(g)               the recipient must not issue a document that would otherwise be a recipient created tax invoice, on or after the date when the recipient or the supplier has failed to comply with any of the requirements of this determination;

(h)               if the recipient has a current GST turnover of less than $1,000,000, it must notify the Commissioner in writing of the recipient's intention to use recipient created tax invoices.
