ATO contact regarding business cars and Fringe Benefits Tax (‘FBT’)

bookkeeping & accounting tradies advantage brisbaneThe ATO has recently advised that it will be contacting taxpayers (and tax agents on behalf of their clients) that have been identified as having cars registered in their business name who have not lodged an FBT return.

The ATO has reminded businesses that:

  • a car fringe benefit will occur when a business owns or leases a car and makes it available for an employee’s private travel or use (including garaging the car at or near an employee’s home and making it available for private use); and that
  • business directors are also ’employees’ for FBT purposes.
