Why Salary Package?
Salary packaging is an Australian Tax Office approved way of restructuring your income. It enables you to buy a range of everyday items out of your pre-tax salary rather than your after-tax salary - leaving more money in your back pocket.
By effectively salary packaging, you can increase your take home salary by thousands of dollars each year. Just take a look at the benefits:
How much can I salary package?
Full-time and part-time employees can salary package their regular base salary. Casuaul employees can salary package up to 80% of their income. Prior to starting salary packaging, we encourage all employees to seek independent financial advice - it is an employees' responsibility to do this.
How much does it cost?
There are costs involved in Eastern Health administering all your salary packaging arrangements. The amount will depend on the benefit packaged and it is paid from your pre-tax salary.
