Section 131: Replacement accessories

486.This section sets out the rules for calculating the cash equivalent of a replacement accessory.

488.Subsection (2) applies when the new accessory is not superior to the old accessory.

489.Subsection (3) applies when the new accessory is superior to the old accessory and the conditions in subsection (4) are met.

490.Subsection (4) states the conditions referred to in subsection (3).

491.Subsection (5) states what is meant by “superior” in this section.

492.Subsection (6) states what is meant by the “price of an accessory” in this section.
