Salary packaging

Salary packaging (also known as salary sacrifice) is an arrangement where you pay for some items or services straight from your pre-tax salary. This can reduce your taxable income and put more money in your pocket. Salary packaging is available to Macquarie staff who have fixed-term or continuing employment.

NLC, Macquarie University’s salary packaging provider, offers a variety of items including novated leases, professional membership fees, laptops and tablets. View the full list of items that can be salary packaged through NLC. Contact NLC to discuss your salary packaging options on 1800 652 652 or via the NLC website.

A range of other items are able to be packaged including:

  • childcare fees
  • Macquarie University Sport and Aquatic Centre membership fees
  • parking permit fees
  • union membership fees
  • UniSuper standard member contributions and additional member contributions.
