If you're an employer and you provide fringe benefits to your employees, you may have to pay fringe benefits tax (FBT).
Some common fringe benefits are:
- private use of a work car by an employee or director
- paying private expenses for an employee or director, such as school fees or health insurance costs.
We recommend you register for FBT as soon as you've decided you'll provide benefits.
You need to register for FBT once you have determined that you are providing fringe benefits and have to pay FBT.
You can register for FBT, or cancel your FBT registration:
- through your registered tax agent
- by phone – if you're an authorised contact for the business, phone us on the business enquiries line
- by lodging a form:
- to register, complete the Application to register for fringe benefits tax (NAT 1055) form
- to cancel, advise in your annual fringe benefits tax return or notice of non-lodgment
