How It Works

Salary packaging entitlements enable you to use your pre-tax income towards benefits and reduce the amount of tax you pay, increasing your disposable income.

Salary packaging is an Australian Taxation Office (ATO) approved method of receiving your remuneration package in a combination of cash salary and non-cash benefits, such as cars, living expenses, professional membership fees and extra superannuation. By paying for these items with a pre-tax deduction, you will only be taxed on the remaining income. Anyone who is employed, and has approval, is able to salary package and potentially save thousands of dollars each year.

Carol's Story

Carol is a 45 year old nurse. She earns $80,000 a year and wants to maximise her take home pay by using all the ATO approved benefit items she can. Because Carol works for public Health, she can benefit from packaging approximately $9,000 per year before tax. In addition, she can package up to $2,650 in meal entertainment. Carol opts to package $2,000 per year. A friend has told her that she can also package her car through a novated lease. Carol decides to novate her Honda CRV as well as benefits from additional savings through tax, fuel and maintenance.
