One of our clients sold a property during Sep BAS period and transfered ownership.
When they receive ab amount from buyer, buyer had paid to ATO of GST as withholding(7%) and send remainng balance to client.
The problem is that cost was bigger than sale price so, there is no capital gain i.e. capital loss.
I would like to ask of
1. Whether client can cliam of WHD GST from ATO which was been withhold
2. How to disclose it to Business Activity Statement. (I assumed that if the margin is a negative amount, it does not need to report to G1)
