Monash Children’s Hospital employees are eligible for salary packaging. Salary packaging is an Australian Taxation Office approved means of restructuring your salary to reduce your taxation. This is provided through our partnership with MAXXIA and enables you to pay for certain items out of your pre-tax salary, including:
- everyday living expenses such as mortgage, rent or credit card payments
- meal and entertainment expenses
- holiday accommodation and venue hire
- the finance and running costs of your car through a novated lease arrangement
- other work related expenses.
