Non-profit organisations and FBT

This information forms Chapter 6 of Fringe benefits tax - a guide for employers.

If your organisation provides a fringe benefit to its employees or to associates of its employees, your organisation may have a fringe benefits tax (FBT) liability. Remember, a fringe benefit may be provided by another person on behalf of an employer. It may also be provided to another person on behalf of an employee (for example, a relative).

Depending on your type of organisation, certain benefits you provide to employees receive concessional FBT treatment. As of 3 December 2012, charities that want to access FBT concessions must be registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) as a charity and endorsed by us.
