 View history reference


If a right or option to acquire a thing is granted, then:

(a) the consideration for the supply of the thing on the exercise of the right or option is limited to any additional consideration provided either for the supply or in connection with the exercise of the right or option; or

(b) if there is no such additional consideration - there is no consideration for the supply.


Making a gift to a non-profit body is not the provision of consideration.


A payment is not the provision of consideration if:

(a) the payment is made by a *government related entity to another government related entity for making a supply; and

(b) the payment is:

(i) covered by an appropriation under an *Australian law; or

(ii) made under the National Health Reform Agreement agreed to by the Council of Australian Governments on 2 August 2011, as amended from time to time; or

(iii) made under another agreement entered into to implement the National Health Reform Agreement; and

(c) the payment is calculated on the basis that the sum of:

(i) the payment (including the amounts of any other such payments) relating to the supply; and

(ii) anything (including any payment for any act or forbearance) that the other government related entity receives from another entity in connection with, or in response to, or for the inducement of, the supply, or for any other related supply;
does not exceed the supplier's anticipated or actual costs of making those supplies.


A payment is not the provision of consideration if the payment is made by a *government related entity to another government related entity and the payment is of a kind specified in regulations made for the purposes of this subsection.


This section applies despite section 9-15.
