Australian Novated Lease/Salary Sacrificing Car calculator
Novated LeaseA novated lease works like this:
- You choose a car and lease it from a finance company.
- You novate the lease to your employer. Your employer assumes all the your rights and obligations under the lease, including responsibility of meeting the lease rentals.
- The contract is in your name and you remain the registered owner throughout the lease and keep effective control of the vehicle at all times.
- If you leave the company, you keep the car. In most cases, you would take over the lease payments, or get your new employer to take over the payments.
Fully Maintained Novated Lease
A fully maintained novated Lease generally includes all of the operating costs, such as fuel, lease rental, servicing and maintenance, registration, tyres and insurance. All of these items are covered by a single monthly payment. The amount is initially calculated based on a budget. Each month (or quarter) the actual expenses are tracked against the budget, and the budget is then adjusted if required.
Salary Packaging is an Australian Taxation Office approved means of allowing your employees to effectively restructure their income. As an employee, you can choose to receive your salary as a combination of cash and approved benefits. These benefits are either tax free or taxed at concessional rates. Replacing some of your cash salary with benefits enables you to lower your taxable income to increase your overall after-tax pay.
The Right Salary Packaging
It is very important that you salary package your car correctly. Getting the right advice regarding the size of the residual and the term can make the difference between saving and losing money! If you are considering salary packaging and/or a novated lease, we can help you. Either as part of the process of pricing your new car, used car or if you’re looking for pre-approved finance. We are also more than happy to work with your existing salary packaging company. Some of these are very focused on the financial aspects of the purchase and not so good at getting the best price for the car itself. We regularly get clients that are using some of the largest salary packaging providers in Australia and manage to save them significant amounts on the car purchase.
I am very pleased with the outcome, and I will certainly recommend it to my friends in the future.
Just a note to say a HUGE THANK-YOU for your services. You were very prompt in replying, and saved us $3000 on the purchase of our new car (almost 10% on the total cost of the car). With a young family, that's a huge saving for us. Thank-you again.
Your manner and professionalism on the phone is excellent. It was a real pleasure to deal with you. I wish you the best in the future, and you can rest assured I will be back!
Thank you for the service. The advice was good and the price reasonable. The dealer came to me at work both to value the trade in and to deliver the new car.
I picked up my new Nissan Patrol on Friday afternoon. I would like to thank you for all the work you did on my behalf and the fantastic price you secured my new car for. It was so good not to have to do the rounds of the car yards and try to beat car sales people at what they do best. Your website was also great with tips on how to sell my other car as well as all the other information available on it. The dealership was very professional as well and the car was ready as promised and in a very nice condition.
Your prompt and professional service was very appreciated, and we will recommend your service on to our friends and family.
Negotiating a deal with a professional car salesman is tough and time-consuming, especially if you don't have a lot of local experience. Having someone act on your behalf creates an advantage that can't be ignored, and I have to say the $4,900 saving that I achieved off a $43,300 vehicle via Carbroker.com.au is definitely worth the minimal cost of registering an interest at the Carbroker.com.au web site. Thanks to Chris Wilson for this much-appreciated service.
I've been with the RACV for over 10 years. I just didn't realise what a premium I was paying for the service. Going with your car insurance recommendation and the roadside assist is saving me several hundred dollars every year!
We weren't sure what to expect when using this service. It turned out to be one of the cheapest, stress-free and best investments we've ever made! Within a few hours of our enquiry Carbroker.com.au came up with a deal that saved us 13% off the recommended retail price of a new car. Further, by using the advice provided to members regarding the sale of our used car we were able to get $1500 more than any previous trade-in offer in just a matter of hours! This is a fantastic service that in total, put about $5000.00 in OUR pocket - not the dealer's! We'll never buy another new car again without going straight to Carbroker.com.au!
We saved around $1500 which was absolutely fantastic given that it resulted from only one web enquiry and five minutes of our time! Thankyou so much. And, yes, we will tell others of your service.
