Salary Packaging Myths and Misconceptions

Salary Packaging Myths and Misconceptions

Over the years, we have heard just about  every excuse for a company not to offer salary packaging to their employees. Yet the real question is why wouldn’t you offer effective salary packaging to your employees?

The whole purpose of the Fringe Benefits Tax Legislation is to provide tax concessions to your employees whilst at the same time delivering significant on-going cost savings to the company.

It is truly a ‘win-win’ outcome for all concerned.

Read the 5 common salary packaging myths and misconceptions with our response below:


1. We don’t have the time or the resources to implement this program.
  • We do! This is our business. We will implement and manage your employee benefits program for you.
2. There is no real benefit to the employee is there?
  • Yes there is! Increase your employee’s net remuneration by a minimum of 3% per annum!
3. There is nothing in it for us (the employer)
