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.
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’d just like to comment on how smooth it was to purchase my car using your service. The finance broker you put me on to helped the hip pocket as much as the price you were able to secure for me. Thank you so much for making a major purchase easy, smooth and without buyer’s remorse. I will be looking you up when it comes time to replace our other car and I will continue to recommend you to all my family and friends
...In any event, and irrespective of which car she decides on, we will certainly be using you and Kim (your finance broker).
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.
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.
I drove around in my old car most of today and decided that I really had enough of it. Your quoted price of $18,200 is at least $1,000 cheaper than any of the others; I have been to three different dealers and haggled all day long.
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
...your professionalism and responsiveness is incredible... exceeding my expectations that were already quite high due to the information available, and style and tone of your website.
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!
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.
