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?
