What is Salary Packaging?

Salary Packaging is a tax effective way to receive your salary as a combination of income & benefits that allows you to deduct some of your pre-tax income & use it to pay for a variety of benefits. By reducing your pre-tax income you can reduce the amount of income tax you pay & in turn increase the amount you take home each pay day.

Exempt Benefit Items

The Fringe Benefits Tax is a tax on certain benefits from your employer which do not include cash salary or wages. Within salary packaging, there are some items which are exempt from this tax.

Standard Exempt Items
LAFHA Work-Related Travel
Relocation Costs DIDO
Child Care Fees (in house) FIFO
Remote Area Rent (Employer Supplied)

Standard Items

LAFHA – Living Away From Home Allowance
If you are working and living away from your main residence, salary packaging can help reduce your costs and save tax.

Child Care Fees (In house)
An employee may salary package childcare fees in relation to childcare supplied by a registered childcare provider as an exempt item if it is located on the employer’s premises.

DIDO – Drive-In-Drive-Out
Employees who are considered Drive-in-Drive-out can have their travel expenses paid pre-tax.

FIFO – Fly-In-Fly-Out
If an employee is Fly-In-Fly-Out, they may salary package theses expenses, including flights.
