What is salary packaging?
It is a formal arrangement between an employer and an employee, if the employee agrees to receive a lower amount of pay each payday in return for the employer providing them with benefits of a similar value to the reduction in pay. Depending on individual circumstances, you may be able to salary package certain items - including electricity, clothing and groceries - and potentially reduce your taxable income and increase your disposable income.
What is Novated Leasing?
It’s a three-way agreement between you, your employer and a finance company that allows you to bundle not only your lease payments but all your car’s running costs – including petrol, insurance, rego and servicing – into one convenient regular payment.
So how does a novated lease work?
Basically, a car is leased in your name, via your employer, and instead of paying with the money you have left over after tax, your lease is covered using funds from a combination of your pre and post-tax salary. While fringe benefits tax might apply, salary packaging a car could lower your taxable income and reduce the cost of getting into and running your next car. Best of all, novated leasing is fully approved by the Australian Tax Office.
