Salary Packaging is an Australian Taxation Office approved way of sacrificing gross salary in return for non-cash employer provided benefits.
Typically people are paid gross salary through payroll and income tax is deducted and they are left to spend or save the rest (the net or "take home pay"). Salary Packaging works by transferring the way you pay for a service or a good from post tax to pre tax. Effectively, the marginal tax rate that you are on is the savings that can be obtained from Salary Packaging (less any other Taxes or charges).
Employees of Curtin, either on a continuing employment contract or a fixed term contract, may participate in the Salary Packaging scheme.
