Salary Packaging - Making the most of your income

Salary Packaging, also known as salary sacrifice, is when you use part of your income to pay for certain expenses in pre-tax dollars. This can help you maximise your disposable income and reduce your overall tax bill, which is a great thing, no matter how much money you earn!

For instance, if  you are in the medical field, you may be able to Salary Package many expenses. Here are just a few of the possibilities:

  • Daily living expenses
  • Credit cards
  • Laptops / IPads etc
  • Loans
  • Cars
  • Meals
  • Mortgage
  • Superannuation
