Very easy to setup packaging, well explained & pain free process. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Can choose to do all securely online too. Highly recommend after dealing with others.

Very helpful, explained everything very clearly when helping me set up my salary. Web portal was easy to use, and anything I wasn't sure how to do was fixed by Tony when I called up. Was also impressed that someone called to inform me I hadn't maxed out my salary packaging for the next pay. Everything seemed to be in order when I received my first pay. Early days, but would recommend at this point.

I found GoSalary to be a wonderfully responsive and professional salary packaging provider. Every question was answered clearly and all the possible options were discussed before I chose what to do with my package. Super knowledgeable customer service and very easy to navigate the platform.

Ben Markovic assisted me after discussing options, to sort out my accom/meals component. Very easy to understand and very smooth process. Sent in receipts and was sorted within a few minutes with a reply email confirming. My old company used a different SS company and was always such a drama to do anything or make changes. Part of the reason I hadn't rushed to get it done. Very impressed. :)

What is Salary Packaging?

Normally an employee’s salary and wages are taxable income and subject to tax. However, if you work for a not-for-profit organisation, such as a charity or a public hospital, there is a tax concession. This means that employees can earn a portion of their salary and wages tax-free.

The Australian Taxation Office set a limit. For charities and not-for-profits in sectors such as aged care, disability support, community services and medical research, the limit for general expenses is $15,900. For public hospitals and ambulance services, the limit for general expenses is $9,010. General expenses include rent and mortgage payments, school fees, other loans and credit card repayments. Accessing the tax concession is commonly referred to as ‘salary packaging’.

In addition to general expenses, employees can salary package $2,650 for dining (meal entertainment) and holiday accommodation expenses.

Why Salary Packaging?

Salary packaging can provide considerable income tax savings for employees of not-for-profits. This means an employee’s take home pay increases, as less tax is payable. Salary packaging is like a ‘pay rise,’ as it increases your net take home pay.

Salary packaging is also a great benefit to employers. Salary packaging improves employee retention and increases employment attraction in a competitive employment environment. You are providing a pay rise, but at no additional cost to the employer!

How Does Salary Packaging Work?

Normally an employee’s gross earnings are fully subject to income tax and the appropriate tax (PAYG) is withheld.

When an employee salary packages, the employer calculates the employee’s gross earnings each pay and deducts the salary packaging money from the gross earnings. Tax is only payable (withheld) on the reduced gross, so less tax is deducted. GO Salary pays the (tax free) salary packaging money and payroll pays the balance of an employee’s earnings. As a result of salary packaging, the employee has a higher net take-home pay each pay period.

Benefits of Salary Packaging

For employees, the benefits are obvious. Less tax is paid, which increases the employee’s take home pay every pay period. For employers, salary packaging can have a very positive impact on employee attraction, retention and morale. It is an offering which benefits all parties.

Who is GO Salary?

GO Salary is a team of professionals dedicated to providing a salary packaging solution with care. GO Salary provides our clients not only the best level of service, but also genuine care to each employee. That is what employees deserve. We provide our salary packaging services exclusively to not-for-profits.

GO Salary also has industry leading technology to complement our personal service care. Just like online banking, employees are ‘in control’ as they access our fully interactive salary packaging system. Our objective from the ‘get go’ was to innovate. In particular, listen to the wants, needs and expectations of the not-for-profit sector. The feedback from FBT exempt organisations was that a salary packaging service needs to be more innovative and ‘current.’ Further, it should be much more than just simply payments and compliance. The service should be a total care and a wellness approach to the needs of organisations and their employees. This is why GO Salary was created.

Why GO Salary?

We only service not-for-profits. We have a great understanding and empathy for the services they provide. Likewise, we provide a salary packaging solution with care, called ‘GO Care.’ Every employee is treated with the same standard of care that they deliver to their own clients.

The GO Salary team is comprised of friendly and highly skilled, qualified professionals. Collectively, they have over 100 years of salary packaging experience. We even have a Chartered Accountant with a Masters in Taxation. That gives our clients great comfort.

Technology complements our services. Clients have access to our salary packaging functions, communications and documentation 24/7. Our technology is just like using online banking. Easy, efficient, and informative. Once you use it … you can’t live without it!

GO Salary’s combination of service excellence and online interactivity is why we are an increasingly popular choice for not-for-profits. For more information, request an informative 20-minute live demonstration of our system and we can discuss your salary packaging requirements.
