Car = the amount accounted in the salary package for use of an employer provided and maintained vehicle.
Purchase Price = the original cost of the vehicle: used in calculating a standardised survey value for the benefit and the FBT payable on the benefit.
Usage Level = the level of usage the employee has of the vehicle: used in the calculation of the FBT payable on the benefit (Statutory Formula Method assuming 20% rate).
Calculated Survey Value = the calculated, standardised survey value for the benefit. Relies on the values Purchase Price and Usage Level to be provided.

Other Non-Cash Benefits

The total amount, excluding any FBT charge, attributed to the package for all other non-cash type benefits: including leased cars, telephone, professional subscriptions, medical/life insurance, etc, but excluding superannuation and incentive payments.

Short Term Incentive

The total value of short term incentives, paid in the current year.


The Calculate Package button shows the total package values as they will be calculated for use in the survey.
As required, the survey value of a car, FBT payable on the car, and FBT on other non-cash benefits (assuming they are all FBT-liable) are calculated. If either the car purchase price or usage level are not provided then these calculations cannot be completed, and produces salary package totals as shown.
First-round checks are also carried out on the data to help identify any errors or inconsistencies.
