  • Fringe benefits tax (FBT) return 2017

    If you have an FBT liability (otherwise known as a fringe benefits taxable amount) for the FBT year ending 31 March 2017, you must lodge an FBT return by 22 May 2017. However, you will be eligible to lodge later if:

    • we accept a request you make to lodge late
    • a registered tax agent lodges your return electronically and meets our lodgment on-time requirements.

    However you should pay the total FBT amount by the 22 May 2017.

    If your fringe benefits taxable amount is nil, and you did not vary your FBT instalments to nil, you need to lodge a return for the year ending 31 March 2017.

    Lodging an FBT return will allow us to update our records and make these credits available to you.

    If your fringe benefits taxable amount for the year is nil, and you are registered for FBT, you don’t need to lodge an FBT return for the year. You should complete a Fringe benefits tax – notice of non-lodgment by the time your return is due.

    How to lodge your FBT return

    You can lodge your FBT return:

    • electronically, using your Standard Business Reporting-enabled software
    • through your tax agent
    • by post.
