Staff and Family Benefits

Salary Sacrifice

Alpine Health offers all permanent full and part-time staff members the opportunity to salary sacrifice.

Salary sacrificing is a process whereby you can, under an arrangement with Alpine Health, agree to receive part of your gross salary as a non-cash benefit rather than as salary. The non cash benefit is paid out of your pre-tax salary, allowing your gross salary to be reduced by the cost of your benefit, reducing your income tax payable.

You can salary sacrifice up to 30% of your base annual salary, reducing your taxable income by this amount (where no FBT applies). You can also elect to contribute an additional 20% towards superannuation making it possible to sacrifice up to 50% of your base salary.

Salary Sacrifice funds can be paid towards: housing loans, car loans, personal loans, credit card payments, superannuation and meal entertainment
