CAR SALARY SACRIFICING – SOME FIRMS SHOW THAT YOU ARE $1,000’S P.A. IN FRONT BUT SADLY ITS NOT SO

Even accountancy firms are now jumping on the bandwagon, and providing over stated or incorrect comparison gains, from car associate lease versus novated lease salary sacrifices.

Salary Packaging Gurus  have slightly amended the accountancy firm’s website example, to a $45,000 car, with $8,500 p.a. running costs, $8,500 p.a. FBT taxable value, and a 4 year term novated lease rental of $8,440 p.a. + GST.

The employee paid the $8,500 running costs as a non tax deductible  employee recipients payment in both the novated and associate lease examples,  to offset the $8,500 annual FBT taxable value.

Living Away From Home Allowance for Mining Employees

 
Thousands of self drive in / drive out mining employees each owe Bob Millikin fromSalary Packaging Gurusa beer or two!
 
When the draft legislation for the Living Away From Home Allowance (LAFHA) changes was released in July 2012, only employees who were flown and driven to the worksite in employer provided transport, were exempted from the 12 month timeframe limit and own residence availability conditions.
 
This meant that the thousands of employees, typically in the mining industry, who drive their own cars long distances to and from the worksite, at the start and end of their (say) 7 days on, 7 days off shift would not have been eligible for the concessions.
