126F Payment to Customs when information system is temporarily inoperative
(1) This section applies when a person who is liable to make a payment to Customs and would ordinarily make the payment electronically is unable to do so because an information system is temporarily inoperative.
(2) The person may give an undertaking to Customs to make the payment as soon as practicable after, and in any case not later than 24 hours after, the CEO causes notice to be given under paragraph 126E(1)(b) stating that the information system has again become operative.
(3) If the person is notified by Customs that the undertaking is accepted:
(a) this Act has the effect that it would have if the payment had been made; and
(b) the person must comply with the undertaking.
Penalty: 50 penalty units.
Choosing the right legal team to defend your reputation and interests can be a difficult process.
However, it is always important to look at a firm’s experience and results when making this decision.
At Sydney Criminal Lawyers®, we have extensive experience defending and winning some of the most complex criminal matters – so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.
Our criminal law specialists will take the time in every case to carefully scrutinise all the evidence in order to identify problems with the prosecution case at an early stage in the proceedings.
Where issues are found, our lawyers will write to the prosecution asking to have the charges dropped on this basis – often sparing our clients the considerable time and expense associated with defended hearings.
However, should your matter proceed to court, our senior lawyers will represent you and present a strong defence case to maximise your chances of being found ‘not guilty.’
Our senior lawyers are highly skilled advocates who have been recognised for their expert knowledge of the criminal law, as well as their ability to obtain excellent results in difficult cases.
We can assist you in avoiding the harsh penalties imposed by the law if you simply wish to plead guilty – in these cases, our experienced advocates can prepare and present compelling sentencing submissions which focus on any positive factors of your case.
