Salary packaging

Salary Packaging is an option available to all employees of Curtin who have either an ongoing or a fixed term contract. It allows you to sacrifice some gross (post-tax) salary in return for services or goods that are charged pre-tax, saving you the equivalent of the tax rate you would normally pay in that portion of your income.

Study support may take the form of study leave (i.e. granting of time off during work hours to attend lectures, etc) and/or financial assistance toward the payment of HECS or other fees.
