We will provide you with a Recipient Created Tax Invoice which you will need to submit to the Australian Taxation Office. In entering the competition, you acknowledge your agreement to the following: • You will not issue a tax invoice to the RA&HS in respect to prize money received; • You will notify the RA&HS if you cease to be registered for GST. If you provide your Australian Business Number but are not registered for GST, we will pay the prize money as detailed in the Prize Schedule without reference to the GST.
