There’s a super way you could increase your take-home pay.
Did you know you could be eligible to salary package your standard and any additional voluntary superannuation contributions, potentially increasing your take-home-pay while still growing your nest egg?
Typically, Queensland Government employees have their standard superannuation contribution set at 5% of their salary, which enables an employer contribution of up to 12.75%. These numbers differ for Queensland Police staff; refer to the Superannuation Information Booklet for more information.
With RemServ, a trusted name in salary packaging and proud to be part of the Queensland Government panel of providers for more than 20 years now, the 5% (or other selected standard contribution percentage) would be deducted from your salary before tax is applied – meaning that you could pay less tax and could have more spending money each pay! And if you wish to further increase your retirement fund, you can choose to make voluntary super contributions in addition to your standard contribution amount.

Our online sign-up for super has five steps - and all you need is your employee number (as detailed on your payslip)
Employees can salary package both standard and any additional voluntary superannuation contributions.
The salary packaging of standard and voluntary superannuation contributions can be made only to a regulated superannuation fund that has a complying status.
All superannuation contribution funds are sent directly to the employee’s chosen Super fund.
In the salary packaging example, the benefit amount shown is after the following have been applied: applicable tax as shown with 2018/2019 (packaging) personal marginal tax rates, Medicare levy of 2% of taxable income, administration fee $38.74, refund of GST paid (Input Tax Credit) $3.82. When you package additional contributions your super is taxed at a ‘concessional’ (before-tax) rate of 15%. There is an annual limit of $25,000 (including your employer’s contribution of up to 12.75%) that can be packaged to super before excess contributions tax becomes payable.
