b-packaged®

A simple solution allowing your staff to make payments as part of their fringe benefits.

Our simple payment solution so you can concentrate on the important things

Making it easy for your employees to make payments, keep track of their spending, and manage their tax requirements.


How it works

Fringe benefits and salary packages don't have to be an administrative headache. Bendigo's low fee b-packaged® debit Mastercard® makes the entire process simpler and is available to all not-for-profits with Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) status.

The b-packaged® card allows employees to make payments with their card as part of their fringe benefits, instead of their taxable income. Whilst also keeping track of spending and managing tax requirements.

The b-packaged® card meets taxation requirements through an Australian Taxation Office Class Ruling (CR 2007/15).

Please note: if your rent is going into your landlord’s personal account (i.e. private rental) you will need to ensure that you arrange for Section 7 of the form (Employer Authorisation) to be completed. We will be unable to establish any payments without this authorisation from your employer.

No, tithes or donations should not be made with the funds in your b-packaged account. These payments are not classed as an expense payment benefit so are therefore non-compliant with the product’s ATO class ruling.
