Salary Packaging

CBCHS utilise SalaryPackagingPlus to provide a salary-packaging program to our employees. Salary packaging enables employees to pay for items out of their pre-tax salary, including:

  • Mortage or rent
  • Credit Card payments
  • Holiday accommodation or venue hire
  • Meals and entertainment

What is it?

Salary packaging is a voluntary ATO approved way of restructuring your income. It allows you to pay for a range of everyday items out of your pre-tax income rather than after-tax, hence reducing the amount of tax and increasing your take home pay.  For most eligible employees of charitable organisations like CBCHS this increase in take home pay can be significant. 

Eligibility

All permanent and term contract employees, full or part-time, are eligible to apply for salary packaging with CBCHS. Casual employees are not eligible.
