Save On Your Mobile Phone

The purchase price of a mobile phone can be packaged if it is used at least 50% for business purposes and forms part of your employer's salary packaging policy. You may not have to pay GST for this benefit!

In the Health and Charities sector this means this benefit may be packaged in addition to the threshold (capped) amount for your sector, tax free.
