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.
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!
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!!
It is a sorely needed service as we have had nothing but stress and grief with the dealers we have approached ourselves.
...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.
Just to let you know that we took delivery of the new Mazda SP23 last night with the customer service from the dealer first class. I would like to take this oportunity in thanking you for your help, professional advice and most important getting me a great deal on the Mazda SP23 that I would never have achieved.
I would like to thank you and your organisation for your assistance in the purchase of my new Hyundai Tiburon. As you are aware, I am Sales Manager of a busy company in Brisbane, and I did not have to leave my office once during the 4 days it took to find the car,organise trade-in,arrange for extras and deliver the car. I would have no hesitation in recomending your organisation to both, my friends and interested parties looking to purchase a new car. Thanks again and good luck in the future
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.
I took delivery of the new car today. Until it actually happened I had a concern at the back of my mind that it was too good to be true to get the car at the price you obtained for me, with no catches. The dealer rep has been great and I have had no sense of getting cut price service to go with the low price. So, thank you. I am sold and based on my experience I am sure your business will continue to grow simply by word of mouth....mine will be among the loudest.
Don't know how you achieve your prices but it certainly makes a difference, avoids the hassle of dealing with salesmen and has been excellent value for money. Will definitely recommend your services to family and friends.
