To ensure your clients are covered by your lodgment program for their 2020 fringe benefits tax (FBT) return, you must be listed as their registered tax agent and have added them to your FBT client list by 21 May 2020.
The due dates for lodgment of 2020 FBT returns and associated payment are:
25 June 2020 if you lodge the return through the practitioner lod
gment service (PLS), with payment due by 28 May 2020.
21 May 2020 for lodgment and payment if you lodge the return by paper.
Online services for agents will show lodgment due dates for your existing clients by 30 April 2020.
You can request an FBT client list through Practice mail in Online services for agents. Select the Fringe benefits tax topic and Agent request for electronic FBT client list subject. This will help you check which of your clients need to:
be added to your client list by 21 May
lodge a 2020 FBT return
lodge a non-lodgment advice.
If your clients do not need to lodge an FBT return for 2020, you must let us know as early as possible to avoid processing delays.
