A gentle reminder that the 2021 Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) return is due for lodgment on 25 June 2021, if the return is lodged via PLS.
- If you have a tax agent that lodges an FBT return on your behalf electronically, the due date to lodge and pay is 25 June 2021.
- If you prepare your own FBT return, you can lodge up to 25 June 2021 without incurring a failure to lodge on time (FLT) penalty. The payment due date was 21 May 2021.
- If you are registered for FBT and your fringe benefits taxable amount during an FBT 2021 year is nil, you don’t need to lodge an FBT return for the year, but it is recommended to complete a Fringe benefits tax – Notice of non-lodgment form as this will avoid the ATO seeking a return from you at a later date.
- If you did not have an FBT liability for the FBT year, and you did not vary your FBT instalments to nil during that year, you will also need to lodge an FBT return. Lodging an FBT return will allow the ATO to update their records and refund the FBT instalment credits you paid during the FBT year.
