Taxation Institute’s FBT Subcommittee
The Taxation Institute’s FBT Subcommittee, chaired by Elizabeth Lucas FTIA (Grant Thornton Australia), met on Thursday 29 January 2009. Issues identified for the 26 February 2009 NTLG FBT meeting include:
- Whether the ATO has modified the FBT return form for 2009 so that any extended lodgment payments (ie wash up payments) can be shown separately;
- What substantiation is the employer now required to obtain in respect of joint investments and otherwise deductible rule and is the current employee declaration sufficient; and
- When working out whether an employee is away for more than 5 nights for travel diary purposes, does the ATO ignore days where the employee is in transit?
