There are many misconceptions about salary packaging so we try to answer the main ones with our FAQ sheet. Feel free to write to us our call if you have any questions we have not covered.

What is the Salary Saver finance product?

  • The core finance product of Salary Saver is a novated lease. A novated lease is a three-way salary sacrifice agreement between employer- financier-employee.

How will salary packaging affect my pay?

  • Each pay cycle, your employer’s payroll department deducts a nominated portion of your salary before tax is applied. With direct debit consent from your employer, funds will be credited to us on 5th of each month

  • Then these funds will be nominated to pay for your chosen benefits (e.g. finance lease, fuel payment, insurance premium, registration renewal etc.)

  • The remaining funds will be remained in the account as budget fund

  • The rest of your salary gets taxed. Good news, some of your salary has been taken out before tax, therefore you are taxed on a lower amount

  • Your post-tax salary is then deposited into your bank account as usual

  • Effectively you are paying less tax from your gross pay; your disposable income is increased. You will take home more pay at each pay cycle.

  • Yes, that’s correct. We will pay all your bills for you!


Is there a management cost?

  • Yes, but Salary Saver management fees are set at $29.16 per month
