Exempt Benefits Guide for QB Ministers and Churches

Home / Exempt Benefits Guide for QB Ministers and Churches

Accessing Exempt Benefits for our pastors are a wonderful privilege for our churches and our recommendation is for churches to provide eligible ministers with a 50:50 split between remuneration (stipend) and exempt benefit.   The regulations around eligibility and the use of exempt benefits are often not well understood leading to many of our churches and pastors failing to meet the requirements of the ATO. 

We have recently developed a comprehensive guide to exempt benefits and their use in QB Churches to help churches and pastors understand and meet their obligations. 

We would encourage all pastors, treasurers and administrators to read this guide carefully.   

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the QB Pastoral Services department or Baplink.
