(c)  an assessable dealing with the car occurred, or will occur, after the commencement of this section.

15E(4)  Modifications of fringe benefits tax rules.  

For the purposes of this section, the following assumptions are to be made about the Fringe Benefits Tax Assessment Act 1986:

(a)  it is to be assumed that the application of a car to a private use, or the availability of a car for private use, does not give rise to a car benefit if the application or availability, as the case may be:

(i) related exclusively to work-related travel of the employee concerned; or
(ii) was minor, infrequent and irregular;

(b)  it is to be assumed that motor cycles and similar vehicles were not excluded from the definition of ``car'' in subsection 136(1) of that Act;

(c)  it is to be assumed that paragraphs (d) and (e) of the definition of ``employer'' in subsection 136(1) of that Act had not been enacted.

Note 1:

Paragraph (d) excludes the Commonwealth from the definition of ``employer'' .

Note 2:

Paragraph (e) excludes an authority of the Commonwealth that cannot, by a law of the Commonwealth, be made liable to taxation by the Commonwealth, from the definition of ``employer'' .

15E(5)  Members of local governing bodies not excluded.  

For the purposes of this section, the meaning of an expression used in the Fringe Benefits Tax Assessment Act 1986 is to be determined as if paragraph (pa) of the definition of ``salary or wages'' in subsection 221A(1) of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 had not been enacted.

Note:

Paragraph (pa) excludes remuneration or allowances paid to members of certain local governing bodies from the definition of ``salary or wages'' .
