77. Repayments by the Commonwealth

If:

(a) an amount is received by the Commonwealth; and

(b) some or all of the amount is required or permitted to be repaid; and

(c) the Finance Minister is satisfied that, apart from this section, there is no appropriation for the repayment;

then the CRF is appropriated for the repayment.

Note: For example, this section would apply:

(a) to a law that requires an application fee to be refunded to an unsuccessful applicant; or

(b) to a contractual obligation to repay a loan; or

(c) as a result of section 76, to payments that are required or permitted between non-corporate Commonwealth entities.
