  • Get ready for fringe benefits tax time 2022

    If any of your clients have provided fringe benefits to their employees or their associates between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022, the time to lodge and pay their 2022 FBT returns is fast approaching.

    On this page

    Due dates

    The due date to both lodge and pay is:

    • 27 June 2022 if you lodge their FBT return electronically (as the lodgment program due date of 25 June falls on a weekend this year), or
    • 23 May 2022 if you lodge their FBT return by paper (as the statutory due date of 21 May also falls on a weekend).

    Your FBT client list

    To ensure your clients are covered by your lodgment program for their 2022 FBT return, you must be appointed on their ATO record as their tax agent for the FBT role by 21 May.

    Your clients' payment due date will be updated in our systems by the end of May 2022.

    You can request an FBT client list through Practice mail in Online services for agents. Select the Fringe benefits tax topic and Agent request for electronic FBT client list subject. This will help you check which of your clients need to lodge a 2022 FBT return and those that should submit a non-lodgment advice.

    Non-lodgment advice

    Remember, if your clients don’t have to lodge an FBT return but they are registered for FBT, they should notify us that their return is not necessary. This can be done by lodging an FBT – non-lodgment advice for registered agents form.

    Attach your client's FBT non-lodgment advice form to a Practice mail message, using the Fringe benefits tax topic and FBT non-lodgment advice subject. Submit their non-lodgment advice as early as possible as processing can take up to 28 days during peak lodgment period.

    If you are experiencing difficulties and require help with your lodgment program, there is a range of short and longer term support options available. We recommend you contact us before the due date so we can work through suitable options for your practice.
