Start thinking about your FBT obligations

The 2023 FBT year ended on 31 March, so it is now time for employers to get ready to lodge their 2023 FBT returns, where they have provided benefits to their employees (or their associates) between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023.

If you have provided fringe benefits to employees during the year, we are able to assist you with satisfying the following requirements:

  • self-assessing your FBT liability for the FBT year;
  • lodge an FBT return (if you have an FBT liability or paid FBT installments through your activity statements);
  • pay the FBT you owe by the due date; and
  • calculate the reportable fringe benefits amount to be included on each employee’s income statement or payment summary (if the total taxable value is more than $2,000).

Employers that have an FBT liability for the year ended 31 March 2023 are generally required to lodge their FBT return and pay their FBT liability by 26 June 2023, where they lodge their FBT return electronically through a registered tax agent (noting the usual due date of 25 June falls on a weekend this year).

Employers that are not included on a registered tax agent’s FBT client list must generally lodge an FBT return by 22 May 2023.

Employers do not need to lodge an FBT return if they are not liable to pay FBT for the year and have not paid FBT installments during the year. If you are registered for FBT but do not think you need to lodge a 2023 FBT return, please contact our office so that we can confirm and let the ATO know before the due date, to ensure the ATO will not seek a return at a later date.

Editor: Please contact our office to ensure you are ready for FBT season and confirm what information we will need from you to lodge your 2023 FBT return by the due date.
