What is Salary Sacrifice/Packaging?

This is an arrangement in which instead of receiving the whole remuneration package as Pay As You Go (PAYG) taxable income, the Employee elects to take part of their remuneration in some other form, typically the payment of regular expenses such as motor vehicle expenses.

In most cases, Employees pay less tax under a salary packaging agreement. The types of benefits permitted and the potential value will vary depending on the individuals' normal PAYG tax rate and their type Employers’ status under the legislation.

Employees of the Queensland Government are required to have their salary packaging arrangements managed by a contracted salary packaging service provider.

All costs relating to the salary packaging arrangement are to be borne by the employee including management and administrative costs.
