Are you eligible for the FBT exemption cap?
Maximise your benefits
If you’re eligible for the FBT exemption cap but have not yet reached the cap limit, we recommend you get your claims in now to beat the end of FBT year rush and help to ensure your claim counts towards the FBT exemption cap for the 2017-18 FBT year.
When working out how much you can still claim towards your cap, don’t forget to take into account any regular benefit payments to ensure these payments are not affected when submitting additional claims.
What happens if I reach the FBT exemption cap early?
RemServ monitors your salary packaging account and will notify you if you reach your limit prior to the end of the FBT year.
If this happens, we will postpone any further payments on benefits that contribute towards your cap until the new FBT year, which begins on 1 April 2018. This won't affect payments to benefits that fall outside your limit - such as additional superannuation, laptops and work-related expenses.
What if I don’t reach the cap limit within this FBT year?
If you have any unspent funds remaining in your salary packaging account on 31 March 2018, the money will be available for you to spend in the new FBT year, which begins on 1 April 2018. However, your yearly cap limit is still the same and does not roll over.
