Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) Exemption
A not-for-profit organisation may be exempt from FBT if it is a: registered Public Benevolent Institution (PBI; other than public and not-for-profit hospitals) endorsed by the ATO; registered Health Promotion Charity (HPC) endorsed by the ATO; public or not-for-profit hospital public ambulance service.
Capping thresholds apply to organisations that are eligible for FBT exemption. The threshold amount depends on the type of organisation.
Benefits provided are exempt from FBT if the total grossed-up value of certain benefits (which are benefits that are not otherwise exempt) provided for each employee during the FBT year is equal to, or less than, the capping threshold.
If the total grossed-up value of fringe benefits provided to any employee is more than the capping threshold, the organisation will need to report the details and pay FBT on the excess.

Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
