Pubs seek lunch tax write-off rules rejig

The federal government is reportedly being urged to change tax regulations so that companies are able to write off meals as a business expense.

The Sunday Telegraph reports hospitality groups including Restaurant and Catering Australia and the Australian Hotels Association have gained the support of several ministers for their suggestion to remove the Fringe Benefits Tax from meals at restaurants, cafes and pubs for a period of three years.

AHA chief executive Stephen Ferguson told the newspaper the proposal was "all about jobs and stopping people going to the wall".
