Salary Sacrifice


Salary sacrifice is an arrangement where you can forego a portion of your normal fortnightly remuneration in order to allow your employer to make additional contributions to a complying superannuation fund of your choice.

Department of Health employees have two Salary Sacrifice Arrangements in place available to employees:

  • Salary Sacrifice of work related items including a Laptop Computer, PDA, Mobile Phone, Mobile Printer, Briefcase, calculator or Software.
  • Salary Sacrifice of Superannuation.

The benefit of salary sacrifice is that the deduction is taken from your gross salary prior to any taxation deduction being calculated,
