Employer superannuation is paid to Super SA in line with the current Superannuation Guarantee. This applies to new employees, excluding those transferring from within government who may be a member of another Superannuation scheme. New employees will automatically become eligible for employer contributions in the Triple S Scheme administered through Super SA. As an employee you are also entitled to make personal contributions to your fund, including salary sacrifice. For more information log on to the Super SA website or call 1300 369 315.
In addition, salary sacrifice (packaging) options are available. Salary sacrificing is available to employees who can arrange their income as a mixture of salary and other benefits, and may result in a reduction in the amount of income tax payable.
Benefits available through salary sacrificing may include additional superannuation contributions, or, novated lease for a motor vehicle. Note that employees are still required to pay any Fringe Benefits Tax liability for non-superannuable benefits.
