Version of section 354 from 2003-01-01 to 2007-06-21:


Marginal note:Prepayments of rent and royalties after specified pre-implementation date

  •  (1) Subject to subsection (4), where

    • (a) a taxable supply of property by way of lease, licence or similar arrangement is made

      • (i) in a participating province by a registrant to a person, or

      • (ii) outside the participating provinces to a person to whom the property is delivered or made available, or physical possession of the property is transferred, in a participating province, and

    • (b) consideration for the supply that is rent, royalty or a similar payment attributable to a period on or after the implementation date for that participating province became due on or after the specified pre-implementation date for that participating province and before the implementation date for that province or was paid on or after that specified pre-implementation date and before that implementation date without having become due,

    that consideration is deemed, for the purpose of applying subsection 165(2), 218.1(1) or 220.08(1) to the supply, as the case may require, to have become due on that implementation date and not to have been paid before that implementation date.
