Electric Cars Legislation (Car Workpaper)

We have updated the Car Workpaper to cater for the proposed introduction of the Electric Cars legislation which will cut the tariffs and remove fringe benefits tax (FBT) from 1 July 2022. At the time of this release (September 2022), the Treasury Laws Amendment (Electric Car Discount) Bill 2022 is still progressing through parliament. Any subsequent amendments made prior to being passed into law will be made available in a future update to easyFBT 2023.


Please refer to the Workpaper Column Help for further information on these new fields.

Removed Google G-mail from the list of available services as the ability to send e-mail via a 3rd party service has been de-activated.


Further information is available here.
