You could salary package the cost of your work-related membership fees and subscriptions and enjoy the tax savings.
If you work for a public or private not-for-profit hospital or a charity, you could also package the cost of any club or association membership within your yearly salary packaging cap limit - even if it's not for work purposes.
Who can package this?
You could salary package memberships if you work for a:
- private organisation
- government department or agency
- charity or other not-for-profit organisation
- public or private hospital
- private school, club, association or religious institution
and your employer offers this as part of your workplace benefits program. Contact your employer to find out if this benefit is available to you.
