Why join a not-for-profit?

So you’ve taken the first step and started thinking about joining the not for profit industry. Aside from the wonderful benefits of having passion and purpose every day, let’s talk about the unique offering that only applies to the not for profit industry..
Salary Packaging!
The Australian government provides not for profit organisations with generous tax concessions to attract and retain a valuable workforce.
Organisations included in this generous entitlement are:
  • Public Benevolent Institutions
  • Health Promotion Charities 
  • Public Hospitals
One of the concessions for these organisations is exemption from Fringe Benefits Tax up to the following capped thresholds;
  • Public Benevolent Institutions and Health Promotion Charities ($30,000 grossed up)
  • Public Hospitals and Ambulance Services ($17,000)
What does this mean to you when applying for a role in the not-for-profit industry?
It simply means, that a portion of your annual gross salary can be salary sacrificed to reduce your overall taxable amount and increase your take home pay.
Here are some examples of the  potential tax saving  structures:
