Where a person (in this section referred to as the defaulter) has made default in payment of any gaming machine duty payable under this Part, the Commissioner may from time to time, by notice in writing, require any person to deduct from any amount payable or becoming payable by that person to the defaulter such sum as may be specified in the notice, and to pay every sum so deducted to the Commissioner to the credit of the defaulter within such time as may be specified in the notice.

(1A)

(1C)

For the purposes of subsection (1), an amount payable or becoming payable includes money that—

(a)

is held in a joint bank account in the name of the defaulter and 1 or more other persons; and

(b)

can be withdrawn from the account by or on behalf of the defaulter without a signature or other authorisation being required at the time of the withdrawal from, or on behalf of, the other person or persons.

A copy of every notice given under subsection (1) shall be given to the defaulter by the Commissioner.

the amount of $10 per week.

(4B)

Despite subsection (2), for a notice relating to an amount of wages or salary described in subsection (4), the Commissioner may dispense with the requirement to send a copy of the notice to the defaulter if, after making reasonable inquiries, the Commissioner has, or can find, no valid address for the defaulter.

(5)

Any person making any deduction pursuant to a notice under this section shall be deemed to have been acting under the authority of the defaulter to whom the notice relates and of all other persons concerned, and is hereby indemnified in respect of such deduction.

(6)

The sum deducted from any amount pursuant to a notice under this section shall be deemed to be held in trust for the Crown, and, without prejudice to any other remedies against the person making the deduction or any other person, shall be recoverable in the same manner in all respects as if it were gaming machine duty payable by the person.

(7)

Any notice under this section may be at any time revoked by the Commissioner by a subsequent notice to the person to whom the original notice was given, and shall be so revoked where the Commissioner is satisfied that all unpaid gaming machine duty then due and payable by the defaulter has been paid.
