    If a fringe benefits tax (FBT) return has been processed on this account in the past four working days, additional action may yet occur which could cause the account balance to change. This may include transactions such as the imposition of a penalty or the general interest charge, transfers to other accounts or government agencies, and/or adjustments to the annual FBT assessment – where applicable. If any of these actions occur, we will notify you of the specific transaction which affected the balance.
