Reduction in FBT rate from 1 April 2017

In conjunction with the introduction of the temporary budget repair levy (of 2%, payable by high income earners), the FBT rate was also increased from 47% to 49% for the 2016 and 2017 FBT years.

However, the rate reverted to 47% from 1 April 2017.

This obviously means there will be a discrepancy between the FBT rate and the effective income tax rate for high income earners from 1 April 2017 until 30 June 2017.

It also means that such taxpayers that genuinely and effectively salary sacrifice relevant fringe benefits (e.g., expense payment fringe benefits, such as school fees or residential rent) during that period, so long as their employer is happy to assist, could basically reduce the tax payable on that income by 2%.
