Replacing company vehicles from 1st April 2017

Among the changes included in the Taxation (Business Tax, Exchange of Information & Remedial Matters) Bill; there is an amendment that allows close companies that provide motor vehicles to elect to apportion expenditure on motor vehicles the company provides to shareholder-employees between business use and private use as an alternative to paying Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) on the motor vehicle.


New rules for company cars Published on:

This change will mean that close companies can treat the expenditure on motor vehicles used for business and private purposes.  Where the provision of a motor vehicle to a shareholder-employee is the only Fringe Benefit, the company provides, electing this new method for accounting for the vehicle will remove the need to register for and file FBT returns.
