Novated Leasing

Salary sacrificing a car, also known as a Novated Lease, is the most cost-effective way to buy and run a vehicle.

What is a novated lease?

A novated lease is a salary packaging option that lets you pay for a new or used car and its running costs from your pre-tax salary. It’s a three party agreement between an employee, their employer, and Fleetcare.

Novated leasing gives employees access to concessional rates of tax not available via traditional car financing models. By salary sacrificing the vehicle purchase price and running costs, employees can reduce their income tax and gain access to GST savings on the vehicle purchase price, fuel, servicing, tyres, and more.

Can I source my own insurance?

Yes, absolutely. You can source your own insurance and we’ll include the budgeting in your novated lease so that you can be reimbursed.

What is the difference between a Novated Lease and a Car Loan?

With a car loan, the vehicle payments and running expenses are paid for after you’ve been taxed. With a Fleetcare Novated Lease, the cost of the vehicle, finance and running costs are taken from your pre-tax salary leaving you with more money in your pocket.
