Goods and services tax - single supply or multiple supplies
During Public Consultation on QB 18/14: GST treatment of fees that suppliers charge customers for using a credit or debit card the Commissioner signalled that she would be re-issuing IS 17/03: Single supply or multiple supplies. The Commissioner was aware that some taxpayers had read example 4 of IS 17/03 as suggesting that a credit card surcharge would always be a separate exempt supply of financial services. This is not the Commissioner's position. IS 17/03 has therefore been re-issued as IS 18/04 to clarify that the provision of a payment facility will not always be an exempt supply of a financial service.
