Salary packaging is an Australia Tax Office approved way of structuring your income that enables you to use every day bill payments to claim $9010 tax free per year. All salary packaging benefits are provided on the basis that any tax savings are shared evenly between the employee and the employee's hospital. Simply put, salary packaging allows you to reduce your taxable income, thereby increasing your take home pay (PAYG).
Meal Entertainment enables you to salary package the cost of food and drinks when you are eating out or entertaining friends and family at home. This is in addition to the general salary packaging amount of $9010
