Insurances, school fees, travel expenses are just a few examples of the benefits which you can package. These benefits may have GST payable or be GST free.
Other Personal Expenses can form part or your entire threshold amount for General Expenses.
Your Employer may allow you to package 'Other Personal Expenses' up to the threshold limit of your Industry Sector, per fringe benefits tax (FBT) year. You should discuss with your Employer to confirm company policy if you are unsure if you may package these benefits.
Did you know that where GST is payable for an expense your Employer may claim an Input Tax Credit (ITC) – GST refund? This ITC may then be passed back to you, the Employee.
