2. Is the benefit a 'fringe benefit" (ie. in respect of employment)?


3. Determine the category of the fringe benefit

Specific exclusions - taxing provision (ss 8, 17, 21, 22, 41, 47).

5. Determine taxable value of benefit taking into account reductions.

Step 1: Calculate the taxable value of each benefit provided

Step 2: allocate taxable values to categories of benefits.

Step 3: Gross up taxable value

Step 4: Add these 2 amounts together and multiply the sum by the FBT rate of 46.5%
