    Super shouldn't be coming out of his salary though, should it? Isn't it meant to be an additional 9%? Or is he contributing addidtional super from his pay?

    I'd include it if you're not sure. Better to overestimate than under.

    No no additional super.

    He was told his wage was xyz a day but when we ask why his actual in hand pay seemed to be less we were told that xyz included super..

    They're doing their payslips wrong, there should be this pay & ytd figures for his wage & a seperate amount for super. If it's all lumped in it will probably mean they are taxing him on his super, I'd be looking into it ASAP.

    I agree. It doesn't sound right.

    I am quiet sure they are taxing him on the lower amount only.

    So I guess since your income estimate with centerlink is taxable income I should use the lower amount?

    Yup, I would use the amount he pays tax on.

    yeh double check his pay slip and set up.

    total package = wages + super.

    salary sacrifise/packaging = amount he automaticall takes out of his wage and adds to super in additional to the 9% his employer contributes to super.

    taxable income = I believe is wages LESS salary sacrifise (definately DO not pay tax on super)

    reportable amount = taxable income LESS any salary sacrifise PLUS bonuses I think?

    But it does sound dodgy if they are saying his WAGE includes super - his package can include super buts its a flat 9% of his WAGE. Is he on an hourly rate or a salary or what?
