Novated Leasing – how does it work?


Whether you’re an employee or an employer, novated leasing is one of the most tax effective and flexible ways to finance your next car, saving you considerable money on tax and GST. Here’s how it works and why it’s worth considering.

If you’re an employee

Fleet discounts on the price of the car, servicing and tyres are just some of the benefits on offer with a novated lease. A novated lease allows you to use some of your pre-tax dollars to pay for running costs, allowing you to save an average of $5,188 per year, making a novated lease one of the most financially sound ways to purchase and run your next car.

So how does it work?

It’s simple: you choose your dream car and beCarWise does the rest. We’ll tailor a quote for you and once you’re approved, we’ll take care of the details and the setup with your employer; payment of the lease and running costs is done with a simple, regular payroll deduction.

As a beCarWise customer, you’ll also benefit from:

Choices, choices, choices

Under a novated lease, you have the flexibility of a new, used or existing car and a choice of term from 12 to 60 months. Additionally, when your lease is up you can choose to keep and re-novate for an additional term, pay out the residual and keep your vehicle, or trade-up to the latest and greatest.

You can also have more than one lease at a time, use your new car for business or personal purposes, and often don’t need to drive a set number of kilometres over the life of the lease.
