Save On Your Next Holiday
You can salary package holiday travel expenses for a holiday of a minimum three days leave for yourself, your spouse or partner, and children.
Only 50% of the benefit will be subject to FBT, therefore worthwhile for taxable salaries above $80,000 per annum.
The benchmark travel amount is the usual cost of return travel between your work locality and the capital city of the state you are working in.
This is normally the return economy fare plus any incidental costs. The benchmark travel amount is worked out with your employer at the beginning of your holiday.
For remote areas in the Northern Territory and for Christmas Island, the reduction in taxable value is limited to 50% of the usual cost of travel to Adelaide and Perth, respectively.
