Salary sacrifice/salary deduction
Permanent staff have the option to purchase their annual parking permits through OneStop or by salary sacrifice/salary deduction. Salary sacrifice/salary deduction payments are debited directly from your fortnightly pay.
The difference between the salary sacrifice and salary deduction payments is:
Salary sacrifice – the deduction is made from your fortnightly pay before you are taxed
Salary deduction – the deduction is made from your fortnightly pay after your tax is deducted
The fee deducted fortnightly is listed below:
|Permit type||Fortnightly deduction|
|Annual General Yellow parking permit||$7.74|
|Annual Communal Blue parking permit||$11.58|
|Dedicated Red parking permit||$29.82|
|Dedicated Red with bollard parking permit||$33.85|
Note: only annual parking permit fees can be salary sacrificed/salary deducted. Half year permits are only available for purchase via OneStop.
To apply to salary sacrifice/salary deduct your parking permit fees, please complete the Staff Application for Parking Permit Deductions Form [DOCX, 75.81 KB] (opens in a new window) .
Upgrade/downgrade your parking permit
To upgrade/downgrade your parking permit you will first need to purchase the permit that better suits your needs through the OneStop. Once your new permit arrives, please return your original permit to the Parking Team for a refund to be processed. Unfortunately the OneStop system does not make provision for you to pay the difference, or be refunded the difference between the two permits.
Salary sacrifice/salary deduction
To upgrade/downgrade a permit purchased by salary sacrifice/salary deduction you must submit a Staff Application for Parking Permit Deductions Form [DOCX, 75.81 KB] (opens in a new window) , nominating "Upgrade/Downgrade" in the first selection panel, and submit it to the Parking team.
Once Parking have received your application to upgrade/downgrade your permit, a temporary permit will be issued to you, as you will be required to return your original permit before the new permit is issued to you.
Refunds are only available for permits purchased via OneStop Secure.
Students who have purchased a parking permit and withdraw from study at the University may be eligible for a refund upon return of the parking permit to the Parking Team.
Staff who have purchased an annual or half year permit via OneStop and cease employment at the University may be entitled to a refund upon written request to Parking.
Refunds will not be processed if the permit returned has expired.
For a refund to be processed, students and staff must make a written request to Parking and return their permit along with validation of withdrawal from study or employment.
If payment for the permit was made by credit card via OneStop the funds will be reimbursed on to the credit card that made the original purchase.
For further information on refunds, please refer to the Western Sydney University Parking and Traffic Policy.
