Approved student exchange programs

Legislative reference: section 58ZBExternal Link of the FBTAA.

A benefit consisting of an employee (or an associate of an employee) being placed in an approved student exchange program is an exempt benefit where you (or an associate) have not selected or taken part in selecting the participant.

For a program to be approved, it must be run by a body registered with the relevant state or territory body in accordance with the National Guidelines for Student Exchange. These guidelines are published by the National Co-ordinating Committee for International Secondary Student Exchange.
