Payroll tax on fringe benefits

You may need to include your employees’ fringe benefits as taxable wages in your payroll tax return.

In general, a fringe benefit is a non-monetary benefit that you give an employee in return for their services - for example, when you allow your employee to use a work car for private purposes, give them a low-interest loan or pay their gym membership.
