Investment Loan Interest

You can only package the interest charged on your investment loan – not any principal repayments you choose to make. You are required to submit bank statements to confirm the amount of interest you have paid. As the amount of interest varies from month to month, we are unable to set up regular reimbursements for investment loan interest.

Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) applies, but only to 50%
of the total salary packaged amount.

Income Protection Insurance

Income protection insurance generally covers your finances if you become sick or injured and unable to work.

You must be the only person listed under the insurance policy.

You can’t package insurance that partially or wholly provides lump sum compensation for physical injury.

You can’t claim income protection insurance as a tax deduction if you salary package it.
