Industry Bodies Respond to Proposed FBT Changes

Since the Federal Government announced proposed changes to FBT legislation on 16 July, the automotive industry has been aflutter anticipating the impact on the industry’s future. Kevin Rudd’s government have said little since the announcement and the federal opposition have vowed to scrap the changes and support the car industry if they’re elected.

This weekend Andrew Bolt’s Bolt Report saw Australian Industry Group CEO Innes Willox label the proposed changes as an “ill-thought-through decision”, adding that the Treasury “didn’t actually model the impact on car sales when they put that together“.

Tim Robert’s of leading industry body Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA) explains the impact the FBT changes could have on dealers, manufacturers, fleet managers and lease providers in their video response to the proposed legislation change:

With the federal election a little under five weeks away, AfMA are encouraging those who’ll be impacted by the changes to share their concerns.
