Salary packaging - additional items
Airport lounge memberships and briefcases
The following are additional items which can be salary packaged through the University's salary packaging provider, Lease Plan. The items identified are FBT exempt and therefore have an FBT value of nil. These items can therefore be added to a package without occurring any FBT but limited to one each per FBT year [FBT year is 1 April to 31 March].
- Airport lounge membership
To consider salary packaging the above items, employees need to take the following steps;
- Read the information contained in the Salary Packaging User Guide (docx, 186kb)
- When the benefit to be packaged is selected, complete the Flexible Remuneration Packaging form found at the back of the Salary Packaging User Guide (docx, 186kb) and forward to Lease Plan either by fax on 1300 790 160 or by email: email@example.com.
- Lease Plan will notify the University of the package and deductions will commence from the next available pay period (ie. deductions cannot be made to past pay periods).
** The University strongly recommends that employees seek independent financial advice before entering into salary packaging arrangements. **
