Is salary packaging for you?

Salary packaging, also known as ‘salary sacrifice’ or ‘workplace benefits’, is offered to full time, part time, contracted and casual* employees of the Government of South Australia. Salary packaging is part of your workplace benefits program and is offered by your employer.

The Australian Taxation Office allows you to enter into an agreement with the Government of South Australia to arrange your income as a mixture of salary and benefits.

And you can choose from a range of benefits to salary package each Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) year (1 April – 31 March).

Because salary packaging allows you to pay for certain expenses with pre-tax dollars (or a combination of pre and post-tax dollars), you could reduce your taxable income so you could pay less tax – and end up with more money left over every year.

As the sole service provider appointed by the Government of South Australia, Maxxia administers the SA Government Salary Sacrifice Arrangements (SAGSSA), working in partnership to deliver you a choice of benefits through Maxxia’s local South Australian team and Adelaide based Customer Service Centre.

Before you decide to enter into a salary packaging arrangement, the Government of South Australia and Maxxia recommend that you seek independent financial or other professional advice.
