SMEAEP TAX DEDUCTIBLE RETREATS

Under an initiative with Exercise Association of NZ and IRD called SMEAEP, exercise programs are tax deductible and not subject to FBT as long as they are legitimately being used by an employer as a tool to help manage workplace stress. Jo Woollacott is an endorsed provider of SMEAEP programs, and can offer a variety of packages that are fully tax deductible. These can include personal training sessions, yoga and pilates classes, workshops and retreats. Participants in the SMEAEP retreats who qualify for tax deductions may also be able to claim accommodation at WHY and travel to the retreat as a business expense.
