New taxation ruling on religious practitioners and FBT

The ATO recently released a new ruling about the requirements for FBT exemption for benefits provided to religious practitioners. This ruling is a re-write of TR 92/17W, and there are no major changes to the overall ATO view.

The ruling provides clearer guidance on the Commissioner’s view on the meaning of:

  • registered religious institution
  • religious practitioner
  • pastoral duties and directly related religious activities

The ruling also provides practical examples to explain how certain benefits will be exempt from FBT when provided to religious practitioners.
