Fringe benefits tax (FBT), generally speaking, is paid on certain benefits employers provide to their employees or their employees’ associates in place of salary or wages. Some benefits are exempt from FBT and others are only taxed if the value exceeds a certain threshold.
Data for each FBT year includes data from FBT returns processed up to 31 October after the relevant FBT year. For example, data for the 2012–13 FBT year includes data processed up to 31 October 2013. The FBT year runs from 1 April to 31 March each year.
The number of employers has been rounded to the nearest five and totals may differ from the sum of components, due to rounding.
