Salary Packaging increases take home pay and reduces your tax.
Western Sydney LHD employees may choose to salary package as an award entitlement. Under Fringe Benefit Tax legislation, staff working in a public health facility can salary package many living expenses. Salary Packaging allows staff to have these expenses deducted from their gross pay (before tax pay) thus reducing taxable income.
This tax concession is designed to attract and retain staff working in public hospitals by allowing tax concessions (savings) that increase an employee’s take home pay without increasing the wages cost of the employer.
Staff can claim personal meal entertainment expenses as a salary packaging benefit. This is a fringe benefit tax concession that is available to Local Health District Employees as an award entitlement.
Claims can be made for food and drink costing more than $15 purchased for two or more people at:
