Join us at our offices for our annual Fringe Benefit Tax workshop run by Moore Stephens Director, James Tng.


Our workshop will commence with an update on the latest FBT changes and then progress to more complex issues based on the topics outlined. We will also explore selected questions received by the Tax Service over the past 12 months. FBT scenarios will be presented in a workshop style with a step by step explanation of the basis for determining the correct FBT treatment.

Topical issues relevant to local governments will be discussed.
