Section 96: Representations
390.Section 96 explains how representations are to be made. In general, representations must be made within the 21 day (or other) period specified in the Tribunal’s notice (section 94(a)(ii)). Representations are ‘made’ by being sent with the requisite fee (subsection (2)); and a document, if sent by post or electronic means, is treated as sent on the day of posting or transmission (section 124(3)). Nonetheless the Tribunal has a discretion — as it has at present — to accept late representations (subsection (3)). Representations must be made in writing and an ordinary letter is sufficient.
