A quick way to spend your Salary Packaging Card balance
If you’re looking for a simple way to spend your card balance, why not purchase an FBT Card?
The FBT Card is a prepaid MasterCard that you can easily transfer your exact Salary Packaging Card balance/s to, giving you an additional 12 months to spend salary packaging funds without reducing your annual cap for the 2019/2020 Fringe Benefits Tax year (1 April to 31 March).
Each FBT Card costs $9.94 and can hold up to $2,000 of either General Living Expenses or Entertainment Benefits funds.
How to purchase an FBT Card
If you’re a Salary Packaging Cardholder, you will receive a unique link. All you have to do to purchase an FBT Card is click the link in that email and follow the prompts.
Alternatively, read the Frequently Asked Questions about the FBT Card here.
The FBT Card is a single load card – once you have transferred your funds to this card, you won’t be able to add more funds from your AccessPay Salary Packaging Card. AccessPay recommends transferring your balance in the last week of March, after your last pay for the Fringe Benefits Tax year. Once the purchase process has been completed, the cards will be sent to you via Australia Post. Activation instructions will be included with your card.
Claiming your salary packaging account balance
The Fringe Benefits Tax year ends of 31 March 2019. All claims for balances currently in salary packaging accounts must be received by 6.00pm (ACDT) on Friday, 15 March 2019 to ensure they are processed prior to the end of the FBT year.
Claims received after this date may not be processed before the end of the FBT year.
Tip! To ensure your claim is complete and ready to be processed, complete the form here. Return your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the high volume of requests being received in March, new payments or changes to current arrangements are required to be received by AccessPay 7 business days prior to your usual payday.
