UNSW Workplace Giving Program
UNSW employees can now be part of a very effective program, why don't you get involved?
The University recognises the value to employees of flexible remuneration planning. Salary sacrificing is one way to provide this flexibility. The principle aim of salary sacrificing is to legitimately restructure the way you receive your salary to suit your individual needs and potentially maximise your take home pay. This is achieved by allowing you to receive part of your salary in the form of benefits rather than receiving it all as salary.
Salary sacrificing has been available at UNSW since 1997 with the introduction of salary sacrificing arrangements for child care at Tiggers Place and compulsory superannuation contributions to UniSuper.
When considering the salary sacrificing of particular benefits, you should note the following:
- participation in the salary sacrificing scheme is voluntary;
- you are free to negotiate only for those benefits that the University has made available that best satisfy your financial and personal needs;
- participation is available only to Full or Part Time Professional & Academic UNSW Staff;
- any direct costs associated with providing salary sacrificing will be a cost to you, for example, the 15% contributions tax on superannuation and Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT).
