Topic 1 – Are you eligible to claim the FBT exemption. Come and hear from KPMG and they will help guide on how how to identify whether the exemption is available.
Presented by: Andy Larmour
Vehicles that are potentially exempt from FBT and are currently an area of ATO’s focus, as each instance of exemption being taken will typically result in a reduction in tax of $8,000+ per vehicle. The ATO has recently published some practical guidance on how to identify whether the exemption is available and there a number of steps an employer can take to ensure its policies and procedures would satisfy an ATO audit and in his session Andy will focus on that. Also being covered is the success companies are having in harnessing GPS technology to maximise their Fuel Tax Credits claims and the steps that can be taken to go back and recover the full entitlement if it hasn’t been claimed historically.
Topic 2 – How can the fleet industry help improve the road safety strategy?
Presented by: Jerome Carslake
