FBT Returns

Our team of small business accountants can assist in the preparation and lodgement of your FBT Returns

What is FBT (Fringe Benefits Tax)?

FBT (Fringe Benefits Tax) is a tax imposed on employers who provide additional benefits that supplement an employee’s and their associate’s income.


Do I Need To Lodge an FBT Return?

If you provide individual employee fringe benefits that exceed $2,000 within the FBT year or you have provided a motor vehicle (or car) to an employee, you must lodge an FBT return.


FBT Return Due Date

The FBT (fringe benefits tax) year runs from 1 April to 31 March. If you have an FBT liability during this period, you must lodge an FBT return no later than 21 May.


Benefits of an Accountant for your FBT Return

A qualified accountant can advise you on the best record-keeping practices of FBT to ensure that you meet your FBT obligations as well as methods to reduce your FBT liability.

Also, Box Advisory Services Accountants can prepare and lodge your FBT return for you, even with concessions on lodgement dates for any last-minute returns.

“Box AS has been outstanding to work with and has been instrumental in our business growth in the last 3 years. We have worked with other accountants and advisers in the past that will complete our accounting work but no more and do not understand our business and industry. Box AS, on the other hand, understand our goals and map out strategies for growth. They go above and beyond and come up with key issues we would never have known about.”

Hong – General Manager at Fitness Republic Group

“We first engaged Box AS for advice on the business acquisition and liaising with financiers, solicitors and the vendor. The team at Box AS is highly professional, knowledgeable, committed and hard-working. We were really happy with the initial service that we decided to continue our engagement with a month to month accounting service.”

Linda – Director at Tattoo Removal Institute Australia
