Important Note:

All Work Related Expenses packaged are exempt from FBT and cannot be claimed as an income deduction as well. They will not appear on your payment summary.

Where GST is payable for the service, your employer is able to claim an Input Tax Credit (ITC) - GST refund. This ITC may then be passed back to you, the employee.

Expenses are not included as part of the capped salary packaging threshold amount of Health and Charities sector.
