• Novated leasing explained

  • What is a novated lease?

    Watch our introduction video to find out how you can save with a novated lease from LeasePlan.

  • A novated lease is a tax-effective agreement between you, your employer and LeasePlan that lets you lease a vehicle of your choice. You finance the vehicle and its operating costs with a combination of before and after-tax salary. 
    The obligation for the payment of lease rentals is transferred (novated) from you to your employer for the term of the agreement. Your employer makes the necessary deductions via payroll and pays the lease rentals and operating costs directly to LeasePlan. This is known as salary packaging.
    You retain ultimate responsibility to make any payments under the lease in the event that you leave your employer or if your employer fails to make payments on your behalf.

    • Registration and CTP
      Initial registration and annual renewals are managed for you by LeasePlan, with all costs included in your payments. No need to find the cash when that bill is due each year.
    • Comprehensive insurance
      LeasePlan offers competitive premiums for quality, comprehensive insurance, included as part of your packaging benefit.
    • Roadside Assistance (RA)
      Complementary to any membership provided by your vehicle’s manufacturer, LeasePlan includes this in your lease payments only if and when your manufacturer RA doesn't cover your full lease term.

    What is included?

    • Your vehicle
      Choose the best car to suit your needs, new or even second-hand if you wish. LeasePlan can help you get the best price with our network of preferred suppliers.
    • Fuel
      Use your LeasePlan fuel card when you fill up and enjoy cashless driving. All your fuel is covered in your payments.
    • Repairs and maintenance

    • Tyres, batteries and windscreen
