Salary Packaging

As a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) Aspect provides all employees with the option to access Salary Sacrifice arrangements as a way to increase your take home pay. Up to $15,899 of your expenses can be salary packaged, and your mortgage, loans, rent, credit card, health insurance or school fees could all be included. We also offer Salary Packaging Cards, and even dining expenses and holiday accommodation.

Salary Packaging is an entitlement granted by the Federal Government that allows you to take part of your income as a tax-free benefit by nominating a portion of your salary to be deducted each payday and used to pay for an approved range of everyday items or payments. Income tax then only applies to the amount of your salary that remains after these deductions. By effectively reducing your taxable income, you decrease the amount of income tax you pay. Less income tax means an increase in your take home salary.

RACV is the company that administers our salary packaging and they can provide you with advice about your personal circumstances, calculators that show you how salary packaging works and offer additional benefits to staff.
