Financial Wellbeing

Salary Packaging

IRT’s status as a not-for-profit organisation allows our employees to access a range of salary packaging options which can help you pay less tax and increase your take-home pay.

To say ‘thank you’ for working in the not-for-profit industry, the Australian Government allows you to pay for certain everyday expenses with money from your salary before tax is taken out.

As a full-time or part-time employee at IRT, you can package:

  • Up to $15,900 from your salary for everyday purchases on things like rent, mortgage repayments, insurance, utilities, childcare, petrol and groceries.
  • Up to $2,650 from your salary for entertainment purchases on things like dining out, entertainment, holidays and leisure activities.

These amounts come out before your salary is taxed, which lowers your taxable income, so you pay less tax but increase your disposable income.*

Other salary packaging options include putting more money into your superannuation to boost your retirement savings and reduce how much tax you pay overall. Novated leasing is another option and can be a great way to get a new or used car and save money on running costs like maintenance, tyres and petrol.

Meet our Aged Care team: Ethan's Story

It’s the people and their stories that attracted Ethan to aged care.

The 31-year-old is the Business Manager for our aged care centres in South-West Sydney, Queensland and the ACT and has been working at IRT for 13 years.

“I can’t imagine doing anything else,” he said. “The people you work with, the friends, you make, and the residents you meet create a feeling of belonging. What I’ve put in I’ve got back, all that and more.”
