This release contains the final 2023 ATO Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) Return form which can be produced as a paper form for manual lodgement with the ATO as per prior years or when using the Electronic Lodgement (SBR) Interaction Manager to lodge electronically.
The easyFBT 2023 installer file is called "easyFBT2023.1.0.2.Setup.exe" (or later) and is available within the easyFBT 2023 folder on the Downloads page of our website.
easyFBT login authentication system
The ATO requires any software that connects to the Standard Business Reporting (SBR) system must provide a comprehensive login system to help protect users sensitive tax data. Each time you start easyFBT you are required to login to the application. Note: The easyFBT software login is separate to your easyFBT website login (if you have one).
IMPORTANT: Shared user logins must NOT be used. Each person logging into easyFBT must have a unique user login and only use that to access easyFBT.
If you haven't already created a software login for easyFBT (for either the current year or a prior year) then please read the following easyFBT login authentication system blog post for further information and step-by-step instructions.
How to update your existing easyFBT 2023 software
If you are currently using the initial version of easyFBT 2023 (version 2023.1.0.1) then you can use the latest easyFBT 2023 Installer (version 2023.1.0.2 or later) to update it. To do this you will need to download the latest easyFBT 2023 Installer file called "easyFBT2023.1.0.2.Setup.exe" (or later) from the easyFBT 2023 folder on the Downloads page of our website and then run this on all computers that have easyFBT 2023 installed on them.
Any existing 2023 entities and each individual user’s personal settings will not be touched during an easyFBT software installation. Regardless, we still recommend that you make sure you have a backup of your entities before proceeding with any easyFBT software installation.
The latest easyFBT 2023 Installer is a full version of the easyFBT 2023 software so if you haven't already installed a previous version of easyFBT 2023 on your PC then you can use this latest easyFBT 2023 Installer to do this.
