Jade Car Loans provides Novated Car Leasing with Salary Sacrificing for employers seeking to provide a vehicle for an employee to use in their role and both parties choose to include the cost of the car in the salary package.
Let’s start this explainer with a definition: novation essentially means to replace an obligation with another obligation or one party to a deal with another. A Novated Car Lease is a financial agreement between an employee their employer and the lender who is financing the car purchase.
Novated Car Leasing with Salary Sacrificing: Key Features
- The employee selects the car they want and Jade arranges the best car financing deal available at our signature low interest rates.
- The employee then ‘novates’ the lease contract to their employer. That is, the employer replaces the employee as the party to the lease contract.
- The employer covers the car expenses and deducts them from the employee’s pre-tax income. So the employee is ‘sacrificing’ income in return for a fully-maintained motor vehicle.
- Fixed monthly lease payments paid by the employer for the fixed term of the consumer car lease.
- Leasing terms from 12 months to 84 months, depending on the value of the vehicle.
- Residual determined according to ATO guidelines.
- Employers can also covers the operating costs, eg insurance, rego, petrol, servicing, of the vehicle.
- Employer deducts the lease payments and operating costs from the employee’s pre-tax salary.
- Employer receives the tax deductions, claims GST and addresses any FBT issues according to ATO guidelines.
- Employee has a reduced taxable income, possibly pays tax at a lower rate and receives more net income and the use of a full maintained motor vehicle.
- When all payments including the residual are finalised, the ownership of the car reverts to the employee.
