Exploring the Benefits of This Tax-Effective Financing Option

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you may be overwhelmed by the financing options available. From traditional loans to leasing agreements, it can be difficult to determine the best path forward for your financial situation. Amidst these, a novated lease stands out as a tax-effective option that is worth considering.

Here’s what you need to know about this tax-effective form of vehicle financing.


What is a Novated Lease?

A novated lease is a tri-party agreement involving you, your employer, and a finance company. In essence, you lease a vehicle for a defined period, and your employer agrees to make lease payments on your behalf. These lease payments are included in a payroll deduction that can result in significant tax savings. Additionally, you receive a fuel card as a convenient means of paying for the vehicle’s running costs, which are also included in your tax effective payroll deduction.

  • No Business Use Required: Unlike other vehicle financing options, a novated lease doesn’t require the vehicle to be used for business purposes.
