Notice of Withdrawal

Taxation Determination TD 95/35 is withdrawn with effect from today.

This withdrawal is required as the definition of 'fringe benefits' was amended by Taxation Laws Amendment Act (No.1) 1999 (Act 16 of 1999).

The amendments change the way the arranger provisions operate to simplify the application of those provisions and reduce compliance costs for employers.

The amendments apply in relation to assessments for the FBT year commencing 1 April 1998 and for all later FBT years.
