Compare a novated lease to a car loan
Here's a few novated lease examples to help you understand how it lets you save. We compare annual costs of a novated lease to paying for the same car with after-tax salary.
See the reductions in taxable income and tax payable, plus the mix of pre and post tax contributions that eliminate any FBT liability.
With the introduction of FBT exemptions on eligible electric vehicles, the savings can be even greater.
Same car, same price, big savings with LeasePlan's novated option.
NOTE: ECM (mix of pre and post tax) benefits all except +$180k salaries. Examples do not factor in other pre-tax impacts (e.g. childcare payments, benefits, etc.).
