  • Ride-sourcing travel exempt from FBT

    The law has recently been amended to extend the fringe benefits tax (FBT) taxi travel exemption to include travel in ride-sourcing vehicles.

    This means that you will be eligible for the exemption for travel provided to your employees in a single trip to or from the workplace:

    • on or after 1 April 2019
    • in a licenced taxi or other vehicle involving the transport of passengers for a fare – other than a limousine – such as a ride-sourcing vehicle.

    Remember, you may also be eligible for the FBT taxi travel exemption where the travel is in relation to the sickness or injury of an employee.

    As the changes apply from 1 April 2019, we've updated the 2020 FBT return instructions if you need to amend your FBT return.
