For determining net amounts for tax periods commencing on or after 1 July 2010, a recipient created tax invoice must contain a suitably modified version of the type of information required in a normal tax invoice. The precise requirements are that it must:

1.     It must be issued by the recipient

2.     It must be in an approved form

3.     It must contain sufficient information to enable the following to be clearly ascertained:

  • The suppliers identity and ABN
  • The recipients identity or ABN
  • What is supplied, including quantity and price
  • The extent to which each supply to which the document relates is taxable
  • Date of issue
  • The amount of GST payable in relation to each supply to which it relates
  • That any GST Payable is payable by the supplier
  • Such other matters as may be specified in regulations

4.     It must be clearly ascertainable from the documents that it was intended to be a recipient created tax invoice (s29-70).


The requirements differ from ordinary tax invoices by requiring that the recipient’s identity or ABN must be ascertainable, even if the total amount of supplies is less than $ 1,000. It also differs by requiring that it must be ascertainable from the document that the GST is payable by the supplier and that the document is intended to be a recipient created tax invoice
