Fringe Benefits Tax – Extensions of time for payment of FBT

by | May 4, 2021

Extended Payment Deadline:

Organisations that engage a registered Tax Agent to lodge their FBT returns electronically enjoy an extended deadline to pay the balance of their 2020-21 FBT liability. If they pay the balance by 25 June 2021, no General Interest Charge is payable. Other taxpayers must pay the balance by 21 May 2021.

All taxpayers have an automatic extension of time to lodge the 2020-21 FBT returns – now due by 25 June 2021. However taxpayers whose returns are not electronically lodged by a Tax Agent will be liable to the General Interest Charge on any 2020-21 FBT payments made after 21 May 2021.
