ASPIA recognises the importance of having, consistent, affordable, high-quality training in the financial services sector. While ASPIA members have their own internal training courses, all members need staff to have an accurate knowledge of the salary packaging concepts and its principles. Standardised, industry-recognised training ensures a high standard of service for our customers, helping to strengthen the reputation of everyone in the industry. It is also a way to demonstrate our professionalism to regulators.
That’s why ASPIA has developed an online training program. It explains the key elements of salary packing, to ensure that everyone in our industry understands the nuances, policy settings, tax law and fringe benefit taxes, as well as the roles and responsibilities in managing salary packaging, all of which are important in meeting ASPIA’s code of conduct requirements.
The course has six modules:
- Introduction to salary packaging
- The different employer groups, thresholds and rebates etc
- Novated leases and parties to a lease
- FBT types and common salary packaging benefits
- How the salary packaging administration operates and the roles of all the parties including the basis function performed
- Packaging industry standards and professional behaviour etc/Code of Conduct
The online course will take about 25 hours. The course can be completed at your own pace and at a time that best suits you! Download the course overview for more information about what is covered.
