Reasonable food component for 2011-12

May 12, 2011

I always struggle to find these figures every year ... so here are the acceptable amounts for the reasonable food component in the 2011-12 financial year in respect of Living Away From Home Allowances (LAFHAs) for expatriate employees, per ATO Tax Determination TD 2011/4, as follows:

One adult $233
Two adults $373
Three adults $419
One adult + one child $301
Two adults + one or two children $419
Two adults + three children $488
Three adults + one child $488
Three adults + two children $558
Four adults $558
Additional adult $140
Additional child $68


The ATO have been cracking down on LAFHAs in recent years so beware ... even if your employer approves the LAFHA doesn't get you out of trouble when the taxman comes sniffing.  The Australian Tax Office have been known to charge fines and penalties going back a number of years for those that try to pull a swifty.  I suggest that you see a registered tax agent or a Chartered Accountant if you are unsure of the rules.
