Novated leases used to be only available to public sector employees – nurses, teachers, etc. The market has been opened up and MotorFleet is maximising the opportunity for its clients in this area.
Of course there are financial benefits to both the employee and the employer, but we tend to find that a major factor is that this provides a valuable staff benefit, resulting in improved staff retention, attraction & retention rates, helping with the process of being an employer of choice.
WHAT IS A NOVATED LEASE ?
Put simply, it’s the cheapest way to drive your ideal car. A novated lease is a tri-partite arrangement between the employee, the employer and the leasing company, sanctioned by the ATO. It utilises tax free income for the employee to purchase their own car(s) – and also covers the running costs too. It's calculated on the basis of a budget – so if your circumstances change, it can be revised.
It can and usually does include the following –
- Discounted Maintenance & Servicing
- Discounted Tyres, Batteries, Exhausts, Windscreens
- Fuel with a fuel card
- Comprehensive Insurance
- Registration / CTP Insurance
- Accident management
- Roadside Assistance
- Toll management
