Last Thursday, 16 February 2012, Greg Kent FTIA (PwC) and David Manton FTIA (E&Y) attended a meeting of the NTLG FBT Sub-committee.

  • An update on the consultation process regarding Consultation Paper "Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) Reform Living-away from home benefits"..
  • The recent case of Yip and FCT [2011] AATA 785 and the ATO's views on salary sacrifice arrangements, especially given Deputy President Forgie's comments.
  • The process for additions to the remote/non-remote overseas areas list on the ATO website.
  • The otherwise deductible rule for business travel costs where there is an accompanying spouse.
  • The ATO's FBT compliance activities, including the compliance campaign in respect of LAFHA, not-for-profits, in-house and exempt benefits and exempt cars/other vehicles.
