Buying a car is one of the most important decisions that you can make. It requires a lot of time and effort, plus it’s a big financial investment. So, you need to make sure that you are getting the best deal you can get. At beCarWise, our novated leasing experts can guide you in the decision-making process, saving you both time and money.
Did you know…a novated lease can reduce your income tax and save you money?
How does it reduce your tax?
All your novated lease repayments are paid from your gross salary (otherwise known as pre-tax salary.)
This is called Salary Packaging.
Here’s a simple example:
- You earn $80,000 pa gross income and lease a $35,000 car
- The finance and car running costs for your novated lease are $15,800 pa
- $8,800 of this cost is 100% tax effective
- Each year your employer claims $800 GST on your behalf. This is comparable to $800 of free fuel each year
- The remaining $8,000 then comes straight from your pre-tax salary
- Based on this scenario, your new taxable income is around $72,000 pa
- Reducing the income tax that you pay to the ATO
- And you also get to drive away in your dream car!
How do I get a novated lease?
A novated lease is only available through salary packaging providers like beCarWise. You can’t sign-up for a novated lease at a dealership – so don’t sign on the bottom line with them, we’ll manage that part for you. A lease is a workplace benefit offered by most employers and is available if you have a full-time position. If your employer doesn’t offer this benefit yet, we can easily help them set it up.
