Save money and stay connected by packaging your work devices
Laptops, tablet computers and smart phones are must-have items in many workplaces - they keep us connected when we are away from the office.
Who can package this?
Most employees are eligible to salary package a laptop or other portable device. Contact your employer to find out if this benefit is available to you.
What exactly can I package?
You could salary package one laptop and one other portable electronic device per FBT year if it is used primarily for work purposes.
The items you can package under this benefit include:
Before salary packaging any of these items, your employer must confirm via declaration that item(s) are used primarily for business purposes, which the ATO considers at least 50% of the time.
To salary package a device and avoid incurring Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT), you need to keep a daily record of your usage for one month during a three year period after you purchase the device.
