INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ACT 1997 - SECT 32.20

The main exception--fringe benefits

                   Section 32-5 does not stop you deducting a loss or outgoing to the extent that you incur it in respect of providing * entertainment by way of * providing a * fringe benefit.

                   But this exception does not apply to the extent that the taxable value of the * fringe benefit is reduced under section 63A of the Fringe Benefits Tax Assessment Act 1986.

Note 1:       You may be able to deduct losses or outgoings that are fringe benefits under section 51AEA, 51AEB or 51AEC of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 . If you do, then you cannot deduct them under section 8-1 (about general deductions) and so this section is not relevant.

Note 2:       There are other exceptions for a loss or outgoing you incur in providing a benefit that would be a fringe benefit if it were not an exempt benefit: see items 1.6 and 1.7 of the table in section 32-30.
