Payroll tax is a state and territory tax assessed on wages paid by an employer to its employees, when the total wage bill of an employer (or group of employers) exceeds a threshold amount. The payroll tax rates and thresholds vary between states and territories.
This is not to be confused with PAYG Withholding tax which is payable to the Australian Taxation Office and is deducted from individuals salary & wages and reported on an Activity Statement (BAS or IAS).
Land tax is an annual tax payable by owners of land and is administered by your state or territory government. The laws are comparable between states and territories but there are some variations.
Land Tax does not exist in the Northern Territory.
The amount of land tax you pay is determined by the combined unimproved value of taxable property less any threshold determined by the state or territory. The state or territory has allowable exemptions on the payment of land tax.
Generally, your permanent residence is exempt and other circumstances may be applicable on other land you may own.
Fringe Benefits Tax
A Fringe Benefit is a benefit provided to an employee, or an employee's family or associate. The benefit may be in addition to or part of their salary or wages package.
Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) is a tax paid on these benefits that employers provide in place of salary or wages. FBT is separate from income tax and is based on the taxable value of the various fringe benefits provided. The FBT year runs from 1 April to 31 March.
Various categories of fringe benefits apply, and specific valuation properties apply to each category. Additionally, some Fringe Benefits are exempt and receive concessional treatment.
Salary sacrificing is one of the most effective ways to reduce your taxable income and there are no restrictions on the types of benefits that can be sacrificed... but beware of the traps.
Sacrificing items that attract Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) can make salary sacrificing less attractive and it can work out you would be better taking your money in the form of after tax income.
Common items that do attract FBT include:
Expense payments (ie loan repayments, school fees, child care cost and home phone costs)
Property (including goods, real property such as land and buildings and share or bonds)
Good news is that many items that you sacrifice for your personal
benefit are exempt from FBT. These work-related items are commonly
provided in salary sacrifice arrangements:
Superannuation (read more)
Portable electronic devices
Items of protective clothing
Tools of trade
Reimbursement for parking expenses
We can advise you about a salary package that best optimises your current pay situation.
