Summary: All payments from MBIE under the FAP scheme to a GST registered body corporate are subject to GST.
Legislation: Goods and Services Tax Act 1985 Section 5(6D) – these payments are in the nature of a grant or subsidy from the Crown or by any public authority, therefore are deemed to be consideration for a supply of goods and services.
