Fully Maintained Novated Lease vs. Non Maintained Novated Lease: What’s the Difference?

Jamie Press | 7/08/2015 8:55:00 AM

Novated leasing provides a great opportunity to take off the financial pressure when buying a vehicle, without the hidden costs and huge amounts of interest. By offering you the ability to lease a motor vehicle on behalf of your employee, staff can use pre-tax dollars to make payments and budget stress is significantly reduced. This salary packaging option has become very popular throughout Australia because it provides significant GST savings and income tax. It also allows the employee to ef...

Novated Leasing vs. Other Buying Options

Jayde Ferguson | 30/07/2015 2:33:18 PM

Buying a car is rarely an easy process. Most people can’t afford to buy a brand new car outright in their lifetime, so you look for other options that can take the financial pressure off – like financing or a second hand vehicle purchase. But how do you know which option is right for you? With the interest and hidden costs of many finance solutions, or buying a second hand car that may not be reliable, it can definitely be a time consuming and frustrating journey for many. Nov...

Motoring joy on a novated lease

Mark Schneider | 5/06/2015 12:07:16 PM

One of the many great things about novated leases is that you get to choose the car you want. For many of us that’s a sensible set of practical family wheels for hauling the kids round on the weekends, doing the shopping and heading to the bush for holidays. But for more adventurous types the lure of owning a sports car proves irresistible. Well the good news is that the price of many sports cars has actually come down quite markedly, making the prospect of a bit of motoring excitem...

Novated Lease - FBT Rates Guide by Fleetcare

Jayde Ferguson | 6/03/2015 1:29:18 PM

What do Fringe Benefits Tax Rates Mean for Novated Leases? The Novated Lease Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) has been the talk over the last few years as the rates on company vehicles have increased. Whilst these rate changes in the last four years have had a positive long-term outcome in mind, the initial increases have been a frustrating out of pocket expense for many. Since the release of the initial budget change back in 2011, Novated Lease FBT rates have amplified from 7% to 20%. As a r...

Top 10 cars series; China's top selling cars.

Rory Deegan - Online Marketing Coordinator | 3/11/2011 3:00:05 PM

Amazingly 9 out of the top 10 are what I would class as “medium” (bigger than a large hatch but no bigger than a Holden Commodore). Admittedly the top ten only represent some 2 million of a total of 18 million cars sold in 2010 however if anyone is in any doubt as to whether or not the other 16 or so million follows the same trend they need run a quick Google images for &ldquo...
