The statistics from the recent ATO FBT audit and compliance activities don't lie. With 70% of employers non-compliant and 69% of employers failing to lodge an FBT return, the ATO has taken a greater aim at employers. The ATO is broadening its approach to the SME and large business sectors. Along with this is an in-depth focus on cars, car parking, living-away-from-home allowances, entertainment, and employee contributions.
