Tickets & Receipting
North Sydney Council has one type of parking meter the Pay & Go meter, which does NOT issue tickets or receipts.
In 2003, Council took the decision to install Pay & Go 'paper-less' parking meters for environmental reasons.
Requesting receipts for meters that do not issue tickets
Under subsection 29-80(1) of A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999, a supplier is not required to issue a tax invoice/receipt for taxable goods or services that are purchased that do not exceed $82.50 (including GST). Therefore, Council does not issue tax invoices for payments under $82.50.
Please refer to the Australian Taxation Office's website page: Valid tax invoices and GST credits.
It is recommended that you contact your tax accountant to determine the best method of logging parking meter transactions for tax purposes. Note: if payments are made by credit card or by Parkmobile, the transactions will be documented on the credit card statement or available via your Parkmobile account.
