Salary Packaging with CBB

I’ve heard about salary packaging but I don’t understand what it means.  How does it work?

 

As a Baptist Care employee, you can access salary packaging. Salary packaging is a federal government scheme that allows employees of certain not for profit organisations to receive a proportion of their income tax free.  Put simply, salary packaging is a way for you to purchase a variety of goods and services, as well as pay bills (including mortgages or rent) using tax-free dollars. Salary packaging is the easiest way to increase your take-home pay without working longer hours.

 

This is how it happens:

 

Sounds good.  What can I do with my tax-free money? 

 

Once you’ve made the decision to salary package, you can use your tax-free money in any of the following ways:

 

  • General expenses: If you’d like to use your funds for general living expenses, then the CBB Salary Packaging Card is a good option. It can be used wherever Visa is accepted. 

 

  • Pay your debts: If you’d rather use your tax-free money to pay debts, you can set up regular repayments and we’ll take care of the rest! Regular repayments can include your rent or mortgage, any personal loans you have and credit card debt.

 

  • Tax free dining and accommodation: The CBB Meal Entertainment and Holiday Accommodation Card enables you to pay for a meal out, your holiday accommodation and even hire a venue for a special occasion using tax-free dollars. This benefit enables you to salary package an extra $2,650 per year in addition to your normal salary packaging amount. Fantastic! 

 

 

So you’re saying I can get money for nothing? It sounds too good to be true…

 

One of the most common things we hear from those new to salary packaging is that it sounds too good to be true. Rest assured, salary packaging is a government-approved employee benefit for certain types of not for profit organisations – Baptist Care SA being one of them.
