Re: FBT on a sedan Vs' Ute

There is a tax ruling that covers this but you will still have to justify your compliance with the rule, namely that the vehicle is used in majority for work travel and business. You must meet a "reasonable" or "best" estimate of kilometers travelled and this can be done by a Residual benefit Declaration.

Talk to your accountant before assuming there's no FBT and make sure this same accountant will set up the requisites to defend any tax office audits.

I am sure said accountant will be happy to spend hours talking with ATO.... at customers expense, then finally produce a crisp A4 stating that the customer knew the law and accountant was acting on customers instructions, signed by said customer...
