Available to all ECU staff, salary packaging is an Australian Taxation Office (ATO) approved means of restructuring your income to optimise the value of your salary.
You can do this by choosing to receive your salary as a combination of cash and approved fringe benefits that are paid out of your pre-tax salary, thus reducing your overall taxable income. It is flexible and individual to your changing needs.
Types of benefits include:
- novated car lease;
- ECU Sport and Fitness Centre membership;
- voluntary superannuation contributions;
- on-campus car parking fees;
- investment loan interest; and
- home office equipment.
