Work in a remote area - and reap the rewards
If eligible, this benefit allows you to potentially save on remote area mortgage interest.
If you are paying for your mortgage, 50% of the mortgage interest paid via salary packaging can be claimed as exempt if you live and work in a remote area. The exemption applies only to the salary packaged portion of the mortgage interest (not the whole interest and principal). Payments can be one off or regular and may be made directly to your financial institution or as a reimbursement back to you.
Please refer to the Remote Area Salary Packaging Book for more information about what you could you packaged under this benefit.
