125.Subsection (1) makes it clear that subsections (2) and (3) apply only where a notice of liability of expenses or a notice of renewal has been registered and the owner has made representations to the Scottish Ministers under the terms of section 50(4) of the 1997 Act or section 50(6) of the 1997 Act as inserted by section 26(2) of this Act.
126.Subsection (2) sets out that when a notice of liability has been registered by a planning authority the authority must apply to register a notice of determination in a form prescribed under new section 50G as soon as practicable after the Scottish Ministers have given notice of their determination under the terms of section 50(5).
127.Subsection (3) sets out that when the original notice of liability has been registered by Scottish Ministers they must apply to register a notice of determination as soon as practicable after they have made their determination.
128.Subsection (4) sets out that a notice of determination must specify the amount recoverable in connection with a notice of liability for expenses.

130.Subsection (6) makes it clear that the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland will not be required to determine whether or not the information in a notice of determination is accurate.
