Session 2: Unique COVID Employment Tax issues

COVID-19 Stream

COVID-19 has altered the way we work, possibly forever. To support employees, many employers have provided support to work from home wherever that may be. This raises a number of unique tax obligations for employers. This session will explore FBT and other tax implications of:

  • Provision of home office equipment as loan or gift
  • Payment of health care and quarantine costs or charter flights
  • Change in benefit profiles (eg car use)
  • Budget announcements, reskilling employees and the car parking threshold adjustment and
  • Displaced interstate or international employees, including payroll tax and additional costs or change of LAFHA arrangements.
