Salary packaging is a great way to use your pre-tax income to buy a range of everyday items. This is an Australian Tax Office approved way for eligible employees of Not-For-Profit organisations (NFP) and Public Benevolent Institutions (PBI) who are entitled to salary packaging benefits, to save on tax, lower their taxable income and increase their take-home pay.
BankVic offers a choice of two types of salary packaging cards that allow eligible cardholders to access their nominated pre-tax income:
Both cards can be used at eligible businesses who accept Visa and can also earn Qantas Points on eligible purchases1. The Everyday Expenses Card is designed to be used for everyday expenses such as petrol, clothing, school fees and even weekly groceries. The Meals and Entertainment Card is designed to be used when dining out with family friends or when travelling in Australia or overseas.
Each card has different spending criteria which is in line with the relevant tax ruling associated to the card.
