Notice of Withdrawal
1. Miscellaneous Taxation Ruling MT 2022 was issued on 28 August 1986. It explained that a taxable fringe benefit does not arise for FBT purposes where purchased goods are sold by a retailer to their employee at or above the cost price to the retailer. As such the retailer did not have to keep records of the sales.
3. The advice provided in MT 2022 has, over time, been incorporated into the public advice product Fringe benefits tax: a guide for employers. The information in that guide provides more detailed information in relation to this issue and is reflective of the current operation of the law.
