With salary packaging, you have the option to use funds from your pre-tax salary to make additional contributions to a complying superannuation fund. This not only reduces your taxable income, meaning you could save on tax, but could also boost your retirement nest egg.
The Government of South Australia already makes regular superannuation contributions on your behalf as part of your standard salary, but making additional superannuation contributions can go a long way.
Additional super contributions are subject to just 15 per cent contributions tax. So for every dollar you contribute, 85 cents goes directly into your superannuation account.
All Government of South Australia employees can choose to salary package additional superannuation contributions. Click here for more information.
You can choose to salary package additional superannuation to a complying South Australian Government Superannuation Fund, such as the Super SA Triple S Scheme, directly through Shared Services Payroll, or through Maxxia to a complying superannuation fund of your choice.
If you are a member of the Super Triple S scheme only, there is also no limit on additional superannuation contributions. Otherwise, caps for concessional superannuation contributions apply - please refer to the ATO website for up to date information.
