AC McGrath & Co. advertised in The Daily Telegraph on May 20th 2000 that consumers should buy new Subaru motor vehicles now to beat the July price rises.
The Commission was concerned that these advertisements may have led consumers to believe that prices of new Subaru motor vehicles would rise with the introduction of the GST.
The Undertaking relates to toll increases on roads in Brisbane. On 3 of the 4 tollways in Brisbane, the toll was increased by more than 10% and Queensland Motorways blamed the GST and minor rounding. In fact, the increase included a small component for increased margin.
To ensure that no further representations are made which imply GST payable for supply of goods or services effected prior to 1 July 2000, United Vend Group undertakes to implement a trade practices compliance program.
