I’ll put it in an example.

If an employee pays for something work related (like a taxi fare) then there is no FBT on it at all when reimbursed. FBT is only payable on benefits received by the employee, not reimbursements by the employer on work related expenses already paid for by the employee.

If the employer does not reimburse a work related expense, then the employee can claim it on their tax return.

If the employee buys something non work related, then there may be FBT on this if the employer reimburses them.
