How does sacrificing into my superannuation account impact my gross income?
Overall, making regular deposits into your super account via a salary sacrifice arrangement could mean that you pay less income tax.
Superannuation contributions via salary sacrifice are classified as employer super contributions instead of employee contributions. Therefore, if you make super contributions via a salary sacrifice agreement, these contributions are taxed in the super fund at a maximum rate of 15%. Generally, this tax rate is less than your marginal tax rate.
How does salary sacrificing appear on my payment summary?
Salary sacrificing previously reduced your gross income, however the Australian Taxation Office has changed this so that your total earnings (regardless of any salary sacrifice) are reflected in your gross income. Your salary sacrifice is then factored into your tax return and is a deduction from your gross income.
