It is not mentioned in the Act. You may either collect NBT fully with the cascading effect (2/98) or without cascading effect (just 2/100) or just not charge from customer at all. If you charge from customers, customer can either pay it or just find some other supplier who does not charge NBT from the customers. It will all depend on the bargaining power of the buyer & seller.
