How would your business measure up to the FAT test under an ATO audit?
As a general rule if a business makes financial supplies then it may not be entitled to claim the GST credits on the costs associated with making those supplies.
The FAT is a de minimis test that allows businesses that only make minor financial supplies to claim full GST credits on the costs associated with those supplies. However, if your business fails the FAT test then you may not be entitled to claim all of the GST credits on the costs associated with your financial supplies.
