Salary Packaging for Employees

Salary Packaging is an arrangement between an employer and an employee, where the employee agrees to give up part of their future entitlement to salary or wages in return for the employer providing benefits of a similar value.

A novate lease may be a tax effective way to finance the acquisition of a new vehicle. Under a novated lease arrangement the emplyer take over all or part of your obligations on the relevant lease. The cost of the lease including the running costs and FBT payable by your employer are deducted from your salary before tax under an effective salary sacrificing arrangement which can result in lower cost for some employees. You should seek independent advice based on your own personal circumstances.

  • Saving on income tax – Your employer will take a portion of your lease payment and running costs from pre tax income.
  • Saving on GST – Your employer can also claim a GST input tax credit on those costs paid pre-tax, this saves GST on running costs and repayments.
  • Saving on the purchase price – We can access fleet pricing on new vehicle purchases
