FBT Q&A ‘ Staff vouchers in excess of $300


We give Gift/Voucher cards to staff members where all of the following circumstances apply:

  • We give a Gift/Voucher card to a staff member for reward/recognition.
  • These cards are given on an infrequent and irregular base.
  • The value of a card is equal to or greater than the threshold value ($300).

Is the gift card Fringe Benefit taxable?


Where the value is $300 or more then the minor benefit exemption cannot be accessed. In order for the minor benefit exemption to be accessed the notional taxable value of the benefit must be less than $300.
