Salary packaging

Salary packaging or salary sacrificing is an arrangement between an employer (Queensland Health) and an employee, where the employer provides the employee with benefits in return for an agreed salary adjustment.  Salary packaging or sacrificing allows you to deduct some of your pre-tax salary and use it to pay for benefits such as rent or mortgage repayments, insurances, motor vehicle operating expenses, travel expenses and more.

By reducing your pre-tax income, you reduce the amount of income tax you pay, and therefore increase the amount of pay you take home each fortnight.

Two salary packaging administrators, RemServ and SmartSalary are responsible for the management of Queensland Health employees' salary packaging arrangements.
