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.
Thanks for the quote. I am kicking my self slightly. In the weekend I went to my local dealer to test drive the car and was offered exactly my spec with 1500km on the clock. 3 months old for $55K (the GMs car). I had to make a call on the spot because another chap was also looking at it. I thought this would be pretty hard to beat so i went for it. If i had waited i guess i would have an absolutely new car and with 12 months worth of rego not 9. We live and learn. Next time. Thanks and regards
Chris, You are a champ. Your advice on the trade-in worked a treat. I have a buyer at $14,280. A cool $2280 above the original figure! Thanks mate!
I know what you mean when you say 'buyer's remorse'. I've had it each time I bought a new car except this time. It's a great feeling to a) get a great price b) avoid the huge stress. Seeing things from 'the other side' has made me a convert: This is the way to buy a car! Thanks for a great business.
It is a sorely needed service as we have had nothing but stress and grief with the dealers we have approached ourselves.
Just a short note to say thank you for brokering the purchase of my new car. The MX-5 is fantastic and what's even better is the great price you negotiated for me. The Paint Protection went on with ease and the finish is superb. I'm glad you recommended it. The entire experience has been a positive one for me. I will gladly recommend your company to any of my friends or family who are thinking of purchasing a vehicle in the future.
Thankyou very much Carbroker.com.au for helping us to buy our new car. We are very happy with the process of buying a car through Carbroker.com.au. We usually have big arguments over haggling so it was a great relief to get CarBroker to do all the hard work to relieve the stress on us and our marriage. And we still got a great price!
WOW FACTOR!! For the sevice provided, the lovely people that are always a pleasure to deal with and the easy delivery of the new car that I requested - I am an extremely happy customer. I was lucky to stumble across the Carbroker.com.au website and have told friends and family that there is no better way to buy. Chris - thanks for doing a great deal for me in the purchase of the Toyota - saved me thousands of $$$ and found me a beautiful new car. Fantastic website & a lovely person to do business with. Cheers!!
I must say that your service is excellent - using it should be a "no brainer" for anyone buying a car. Gaining access to a sourcing professional with deep domain expertise to assist with a high value purchase for under a $100 is fantastic. Many thanks
I'd like to take this opportunity to say that this is a fantastic service you offer, especially for a woman as it takes away the pain of dealing with car salesmen. Using your service saved me thousands of dollars and I will definitely recommend you to all my friends and colleagues, in fact one has already logged on to get a quote today.
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.
