FBT issues log
The maintenance of a central FBT issues log can be a useful tool in planning the FBT return process.
An issues log can provide details of those processing or technical issues that need to be addressed to help ensure that the FBT return is accurate and lodged on time.
Typically, an issues log would:
- contain details of all issues associated with preparing the return
- assign responsibility for resolving issues
- provide details of the outcomes required.
The final outcome should be clearly documented. If the issue is of interest to staff outside the FBT work area, the issue and outcome should be advised to relevant staff. For example, if an entity decided to start providing staff awards, all entity staff should be made aware of the potential RFBA implications of receiving an award.
