Salary packaging

Helping thousands of Australians maximise their take-home pay


Salary packaging is an ATO-approved way for your staff to increase their disposable income.  By paying for certain expenses from their pre-tax income, your employees can take home more each pay. And all at no cost to you. Bringing decades of experience, we’re ready to work with you to build an effective program that we’ll administer on your behalf.
