09 May 06 Definition of remote broadened where water involved

The Government will broaden the FBT definition of remote where the shortest practicable route involves travel over water, with effect from 1 April 2007.

The FBT definition of a remote location is based on the distance via the shortest practicable surface route between the remote location and the nearest population centre. This measure will broaden the FBT definition of remote by halving the required distance between a location and the nearest population centre, where the shortest practicable route involves travel solely over water. Where the shortest practicable route involves travel over both land and water, the broadened FBT definition of remote will allow for apportionment.
