You need to register for fringe benefit tax (FBT) when you start providing a fringe benefit. You can do this when you first register as an employer in myIR, or later if you decide to start providing employees a fringe benefit.

If you provide fringe benefits but are not registered yet, you need to back date your registration to when you first provided a fringe benefit.

You may need to file returns for earlier periods and make any outstanding payments. You can register on myIR, or call us to find out more.

Before you start

You'll need:

  • the IRD number to be registered
  • your contact details
  • your bank account number
  • registration start date
  • FBT you provide.

You can register for fringe benefit tax at the same time as you register as an employer online or by paper form.
