VHA submission on fringe benefits tax re-think

Posted 15 June 2015

The VHA's submission to the Commonwealth Government’s Re:think tax reform discussion paper focuses on meals, entertainment and entertainment facility leasing exemptions to the fringe benefits tax.

These exemptions play an important role in supporting public hospitals, and public benefit institutions such as community health to recruit and retain skilled staff required to deliver healthcare to Victorian communities.

The government's Re:think paper is the first step in developing a White Paper on Tax Reform and addresses the current arrangements relating to the not-for-profit sector.

The VHA will continue working on this issue as the White Paper progresses in development. Thank you to VHA members who have contributed feedback and data to this process.
