Explore the wide range of salary packaging benefits provided by the Government of South Australia
The Government of South Australia – working in partnership with Maxxia, the sole salary packaging provider under the South Australian Government Salary Sacrifice Arrangements (SAGSSA) – offers salary packaging as part of its workplace benefits program.
Australian Taxation Office (ATO) approved, salary packaging enables full-time, part-time and casual employees of the Government of South Australia to pay for certain expenses – with money set aside from their pre-tax salaries, potentially reducing their taxable income and increasing their disposable income. Salary packaging can help you to make the most of your money.
Before you decide to enter into a salary packaging arrangement, the Government of South Australia and Maxxia recommend that you seek independent financial or other professional advice.
What is salary packaging?
Full-time, part-time or casual employees of the Government of South Australia, could be eligible to pay for certain expenses – with your pre-tax salary. This reduces your taxable income, meaning you could pay less tax and increase your disposable income.
Each department or agency will offer a range of benefits employees can access if you choose to salary package some of your income. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a big earner to benefit – if you pay income tax, you could save tax and boost your disposable income.
