Things to know
This is for employees who receive fringe benefits from their employer and have the taxable value of those benefits recorded on their income statement or payment summary.
- You have a reportable fringe benefits amount if the total taxable value of certain fringe benefits provided to you or your associate (for example, a relative) exceeds $2,000 in an FBT year (1 April to 31 March).
- Employers must gross-up this amount and report it on your income statement or payment summary. The reportable fringe benefit amount reflects the gross salary that you would have to earn to purchase the benefit from your after tax income.
- The lower gross-up rate for the FBT year ending 31 March 2020 is 1.8868.
- If the taxable value of your fringe benefits is $2,000.01, your reportable fringe benefit amount is $3,773.
