Fringe Benefits Tax
Fringe benefits tax (“FBT”) is an important issue of interest to both employers and employees. For employers, a proper packaging of monetary and non-monetary remuneration would help to ensure that employees are satisfied and motivated to improve productivity and to achieve the goals of the firm. A proper salary package would assist employers in retaining staff. For employees, a proper remuneration package would be focused on the maximisation of after tax remuneration.
Our firm provides advice on:
- The structuring salary packaging arrangements for maximum tax effectiveness;
- The proper implementation of salary sacrifice arrangements; and
- The structuring of employee remuneration including the implementation of a tax effective employee share scheme or bonus system.
