In 1 September 2016, Shiny Homes provided Charlie with a 4 wheel drive sedan value at $70,000. From 1 September 2016 to 31 March 217 the car travelled 80,000 km. He parked his car in his garage in the evenings. Before he goes away for his Christmas holidays, the car was sent to be serviced and he could not use his car for 2 days. He estimated that he uses 70% of the time was for business purpose and the other 30% of the time for private use. Charlie also maintained a log book for 12 weeks and the following information were recorded:
50,000 km were work related

In 1 February 2017, Charlie was involved in a minor car accident and he could not use the vehicle for 2 weeks (1st to 14th February 2017). This occurred before Charlie a week before Charlies wedding and Shine Homes decided to hire a car for that period at a cost of $1,000 to allow Charlie and his wife Deborah to go for their honeymoon trip to Gold Coast. Shine Homes paid for their honeymoon accommodation which is worth $3,000.During working hours Charlie parked his car at Secure Parking (an unrelated entity) and Shine Homes paid $200 per week.
 
Required
Advise both Charlie and Shine Homes about their fringe benefit consequences of these events. You are required to compute the taxable benefit where necessary.You need to cite the relevant case law and / or legislation.
 
1. Allan and Betty were living and working in Melbourne. They decided on a sold their Melbourne home and purchased a large country house on a 10 hectare block in central Victoria. Betty works part-time as an accountant and Allan as a locum doctor. Allan is popular with the elderly patients in the town and regularly is given home-made cakes and scones, along with his fee. On one occasion he treated a local wine maker dog for snake bite when the vet was unavailable and was given a dozen bottles of Lonarch Brae shiraz in appreciation. The wine had a retail value of $360.

2. Allan and Betty enjoy gardening. They plan to establish a few hectares of grape vines and begin growing vegetables. They attend a continuing education course on organic farming and find in their second year they have a surplus of produce. Betty started making marmalade and relish using her mothers recipes. Initially she gave them to neighbours but they became so popular that she opened a stall at the Newtown Growers Market held on the second Sunday of every month. Allan sold some of the excess to a local supermarket and now regularly supplies three retailers with sweet potatoes and pumpkin. They keep records as they never intended to make a profit but estimate that in a good month gross receipts could be $500 to $600.
 
3. Their neighbours have a citrus orchard and throughout the year vegetables are swapped for oranges and mandarins. This seems like such a good idea Allan and Betty decide to set up a system in the area. To join the system a person must pay an up-front, one-off fee of $50 to Allan and Betty as a charge for the keeping of administrative records. Thereafter people register their goods or services to be bartered. For example, Suzie is a retired hairdresser and will provide hairdressing services at her home. No money changes hands. Suzie would receive a credit to her account of 15 to 20 that she can exchange for goods or services of equal value from other registered participants in the scheme (fruit, vegetables, child minding, lawn mowing etc.).

Required 1:
(a) Advise Allan of any income tax consequences of para 1, above.
(b) Citing relevant case law, explain how a hobby is to be distinguished from a business.
(c) Advise Allan and Betty of any income tax implications in paras 2 and 3 above.
(d) Advise the participants in the barter scheme of any income tax implications.
