Does your business have a Fringe Benefits Tax Liability?

Fringe benefits tax (“FBT”) is a tax paid on certain benefits you provide to your employees or your employees’ associates. FBT is separate from income tax and is based on the taxable value of the various fringe benefits you provide. The FBT year runs from 1 April to 31 March.

Since its inception in 1986, calculating FBT has become highly technical and complex. Our team of tax specialist have extensive experience in guiding businesses through FBT and offer pragmatic, straight forward advice and assistance.
