As a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation, we can provide our staff with generous tax breaks. With salary packaging, a larger portion of your pay can remain tax free, thanks to our Fringe Benefits Tax exemption.
You can salary package up to $15,900 of your pre-tax income each year. You can use these tax-free funds to pay regular living expenses—such as your mortgage or rent, car registration, household utilities, health insurance, child care and school fees. In addition, you can also salary package up to $2,650 per year for holidays, events, meals and entertainment expenses. All of this is on top of your regular income tax free threshold—currently $18,200 per year.
This significantly reduces the tax you pay, putting more dollars in your account every payday. Less taxable income. More disposable income.
Our salary packaging programs are managed by Advantage Salary Packaging. For more information, see their website.
As a Lutheran Services staff member, you can also access valuable loyalty programs and receive discounts on a wide range of products and services, from smart phones to fitness clubs.
