Payroll deductions are not available to casual staff and external agency contract staff, yet fixed-term contract staff members are eligible. You also must be registered on the payroll system before a payroll deduction permit can be issued.

Once payroll deductions commence, it is your responsibility to ensure that you advise IFS or HR to cease deductions when necessary. This may mean a change of primary campus, contract or any circumstance meaning you no longer want the deductions taken from your pay.

For staff paying for parking via payroll, if your employment circumstances have changed in a way which may affect your parking arrangements, you must notify the IFS Customer Service Team on 16500@newcastle.edu.au. If you do not advise IFS of any changes to your employment circumstances your automatic payroll deduction will continue. Please be aware that your automatic payroll deductions will continue even when the permit expires at the end of each year.

Your payroll deductions can be stopped by physically returning the permit to IFS. As soon as the permit is returned to us, IFS will work with Human Resources to stop your payroll deductions.

Upfront payment

You can pay for your permit upfront at the Infrastructure and Facilities Services office (SER Building) using EFTPOS or credit card (except American Express). Cash is not accepted.

If you are a casual staff member or employed via a recruitment agency contracted to the University, then you will need to pay upfront for your parking permit. Payroll deductions and salary sacrifice are not available.

If you return your staff parking permit before the end of the permit period, you may be eligible for a pro rata refund.
