Cards Provided by Westpac

The Community Salary Packaging Card Program uses the services of Westpac to provide salary packaging cards that are secure and backed by one of Australia’s biggest banks.

Westpac has invested heavily in products for the non profit sector and built a dedicated salary packaging card product with full ATO Class Tax Rulings to ensure that non-profit organisations have the assurance of a well supported and streamlined salary packaging card product.
