HI6028 — Taxation Theory, Practice and Law



David received property in inheritance from his grandfather on 23rd march 2000 after their death. After getting the property he put this on a lease with a monthly rent of $7000 as he was working as a full-time employee at that time. For this lease agreement of its commercial property, he registers the company and also registered under the goods and service tax.


As per the ATO, an entity need to pay the GST on the commercially leased property if the same is registered under goods and service tax and also registered in the company's act. An individual can reimburse the expenses of the commercial property using GST credits (GST on goods, 2019).


In the current case, David received the property and put on a lease for 10years and registered an entity, and also registered under GST law (Dixon, McNamara and Newell, 2008). So, he can claim GST credit as it fulfills the criteria of claiming the deduction for the expenses.


It is summarized from the case that, David is required to pay the GST on its rental income and he can reduce its tax liability by taking the deduction.
