FCAI Welcomes Coalition Announcement on Fbt Changes

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) welcomes the Coalition's announcement today that it will oppose the Rudd Government's proposal to eliminate the FBT statutory formula method for salary-sacrificed and employer-provided cars, and it will not introduce this measure if it wins Government at the election.

"This is a positive development after a difficult week for the Australian automotive industry," FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber said.

"Long-term policy certainty is vital for motor vehicle importers and domestic manufacturers, and other connected elements of the industry, including dealers, component suppliers and the finance sector."
