On 29 November 2011, the Government announced reforms to the fringe benefits tax (FBT) treatment of living away from home benefits.

In line with the Government’s announcement, the Hon Bill Shorten MP, Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Financial Services and Superannuation, has released a consultation paper.
