Fringe Benefits Tax

Does your business provide fringe benefits of any type to its employees or their associates? The FBT year runs to the 31st March and requires the preparation of an FBT Tax Form declaring all taxable benefits, even where they are reduced to nil by employee contributions.  Typical fringe benefits covered include: cars, entertaining at sporting events and restuarants, providing housing accomodation, payments towards private schooling and health care premiums, just to mention a few.
