05 Feb ATO scrutiny on car parking fringe benefits
Do you provide car parking to your employees on your business premises? If the parking meets certain conditions you may have to pay fringe benefits tax (FBT) on those and other benefits you provide to your employees. The ATO has commenced a compliance program that looks at employers that use the market value method to calculate the taxable value of car fringe benefits. Specifically, it is looking at employers that have engaged an arm’s length valuer that has produced reports that may not reflect the market value.
