A healthy and productive workforce should be available to all businesses big and small. Today an employer who can provide fitness services on premises qualifies for a Fringe Benefits tax exemption. However small to medium business which does not have the space on-site and wants to provide the same service off-site DO NOT qualify for an FBT exemption which is fundamentally unfair.
What are we proposing – Expanding the FBT exemptions to include fitness services offered off-site such as visiting Hiscoes, yoga/ pilates studios or outdoor training.
How can the nation afford that ?
Fitness Australia estimates the cost of expanding the current FBT is about $72mill p.a. but the health care savings would be more than $200mill if there was a 3% increase in adult population using fitness services.
