Novated Lease

Novated leasing is a lease arrangement that addresses the differing needs of employers and employees, to provide a solution that benefits everyone.

A Novated Lease is an agreement between your employer, yourself (the employee) and the financier, which amounts to a transferral of the obligation to meet the lease rentals under the finance lease from yourself to your employer. As an employee, a Novated Lease enables you to drive the car of your choice and to take that car with you if you change jobs.

As an employer, it eliminates the financial burden of having to have the vehicle listed on the company books and of having to dispose of it should the employee leave. You simply pay the lease rentals on behalf of the employee during their employment with you. That is the beauty of a Novated Lease

Key Features – Employees

Enjoy unconditional use of the car of your choice, because the lease is portable – you have the option to take the car with you when you change jobs, flexibility in structuring your remuneration package and you may be able to take advantage of fleet discounts and other benefits. A Novated Lease preserves the equity you have built up in the car so you can use it to upgrade or change over to a new vehicle.

Employers Benefits

Balance sheet ratios are unaffected by motor vehicle liabilities, the company’s borrowing power remains intact, you can attract new employees by offering to package a motor vehicle of their choice as part of their salary, no unwanted car or disposal problems when the employee leaves, as your lease obligation ends with their termination of employment, the company can claim eligible income tax deductions for lease payments and motor vehicle running costs.

Options

Flexible repayments – lease rentals are met by the employer as part of your salary package with flexible terms – choose the length of the lease. The life of a lease usually depends on two things: how much you want to pay per month, and the life of the asset.
