Latrobe Community Health Service is a charitable organisation. This means our employees enjoy significant tax benefits.
Our employees are eligible for salary packaging. Salary packaging is an Australian Taxation Office approved way of restructuring your salary to reduce your taxation. Salary packaging allows you to pay for certain items out of your salary pre-tax, meaning you pay less income tax.
You can salary package:
- everyday living expenses including mortgage, rent, or credit card payments
- meal and entertainment expenses
- holiday accommodation and venue hire.
Latrobe Community Health Service staff can salary package up to $15,990 on everyday living expenses – and up to $2,650 on meal, entertainment and holiday expenses – each year.
Example: If you earn $80,000 at Latrobe Community Health Service with salary packaging, it is equivalent to earning $89,770 in a private or government role.
Novated leasing and salary sacrificed superannuation is also available to Latrobe Community Health Service staff.
A novated lease is a three-way agreement between Latrobe Community Health Service, you the employee, and a financier, whereby Latrobe Community Health Service leases a car on behalf of the employee.
A car is leased in your name and running costs such as fuel, insurance and maintenance are included in a single lease repayment, paid for using a combination of your pre- and post-tax salary. This means you could reduce your taxable income and pay less tax.
You can also salary sacrifice part of your salary as superannuation. The deduction is made before tax and goes into your nominated superannuation account. This has considerable benefits; you will reduce your income tax and add to your superannuation funds.
