Fringe benefits tax - travel

To ensure the University does not incur unnecessary fringe benefits tax (FBT), a travel diary is required for any travel undertaken by staff of 6 or more consecutive nights.

If a travel diary is not submitted, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) requires the University to treat the entire trip as private, resulting in FBT being incurred to approximately the same value as the associated travel.

In line with existing Policy, any FBT incurred will be charged to the cost centre where the associated travel expenditure is reported.
