Christmas is just around the corner and many business owners are preparing celebrations and gifts for employees to celebrate the year end. But how does this affect your tax liability and is Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) payable?
Holding a Christmas party may or may not be tax deductible depending on the following circumstances:
Providing gifts to employees are treated similarly depending if they are considered entertainment or non-entertainment gifts:
Entertainment gifts (concert tickets, sporting events, movie tickets, theatre tickets, airline tickets etc.)
Non- entertainment gifts (pen sets, flowers, wine, spirits, Christmas hampers etc.)
Please contact our office on 08 9387 5637 if you have any questions in relation to FBT…………………..Merry Christmas!

Mark H and Helen have given us wonderful support for our family and business accounting for several years now. When I got my first invoice I grumbled……. not now. We can see the savings and feel the security for ourselves.
