If a provider provides one or more car parking benefits in respect of one or more employees of an employer in a particular FBT year, the employer may elect that this Subdivision applies to the employer's car parking fringe benefits for some or all of the employees for that FBT year.

Note:

Section 39FB covers the situation where the number of spaces available to employees exceeds the number of employees.

39FA(4)   Method.  

The spaces method is:


Step 1: Work out an amount using the following formula, for each space for which there is, in the FBT year, at least one car parking benefit for an employee covered by the election:
Daily rate amount × Number of days in
availability periods in
      relation to the space      
366
× 228

Step 3: Subtract from the total statutory benefit the sum of all relevant recipients contributions.

Section 39FC defines daily rate amount .

Note 2:

Section 39FD defines availability period .
