Tax Effective Salary Packages

Structuring Tax Effective Remuneration Packages in Australia

If you have been offered a job in Australia you will often wonder what the remuneration means in net of tax terms, or whether it has been structured in the best possible fashion with respect to Australian taxation.

Whether you are a returning Australian expatriate, a potential migrant or a temporary work visa applicant, the Australian taxation system, in terms of it’s complexity, represents a significant hurdle.  Before you accept an offer which includes remuneration terms, or indeed if you are employer who wishes to construct an effective and attractive package, we suggest you have the remuneration package reviewed for tax effectiveness.

Our professional advisors have tools which quickly and effectively analyze complex salary packaging factors including:

  • Benefits such as motor vehicles, car parking and salary sacrificing certain costs, particularly private school fees if you are on assignment in Australia as an expat.
  • Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exempt benefits (such as laptop computers, mobile phones, membership fees, subscriptions and remote area housing) and,
  • Superannuation

A review of this nature is quick and cost effective, often leading to better and more transparent remuneration.  A "win-win" for employees and employers alike.
