Salary packaging, or salary sacrificing, has long been recognised as a great way to get the things you want or need while reducing the tax you pay and keeping more money in your pocket. In simple terms it’s an arrangement where your employer pays for those things from your salary before it’s taxed. Whether it’s a new computer, childcare services or school fees, health insurance or simply putting more money into your super (a very smart move) salary packaging makes sense. Perhaps you already know that because you already have a salary packaging arrangement in place through a salary packaging business? And perhaps you’re now thinking that you’d like to add a vehicle to your salary packaging? Good thinking! Vehicles are expensive both to buy and maintain, in fact along with your mortgage they’re possibly one of your biggest expenses, right? So including them in a salary package is a pretty smart move.
Choose a specialist
But before you pick up the phone and talk to your current salary packaging company about that vehicle you’d like, ask yourself this question: are they the best people to handle salary packaging a vehicle? Because salary packaging a vehicle is not like salary packaging other things that you simply pay for and forget, it’s far more complex than that. In fact it’s best left to novated leasing experts like Fleetcare who have 30 years of experience in fleet management. Unlike ordinary salary packaging companies who attempt to cover all the bases with vehicles just part of the picture, fleet management is all Fleetcare does, with novated leases a major part of that. That gives you the reassurance that your novated lease is being handled by an experienced team who’ll always be there with help and advice whenever you need it.
The advantages don’t end there by any means. You’ll also get the benefit of discounted servicing thanks to Fleetcare’s extensive network of dealers and repairers throughout Australia. That’s going to save you money on the purchase price of the vehicle and continue to save you money throughout the period of the lease, and that’s something that ordinary salary packaging businesses just can’t match.
Those savings continue with cheaper fuel. You’ll get 10c off per litre at BP every time you fill the tank for as long as your lease lasts, as well as half price car washes that will always keep your car at its shining best.
