What is a Novated Lease?

A Novated Lease is an employee benefit that makes it more cost-effective* to drive the car you love.

A Novated Lease bundles all your car payments and running costs into one simple payment – part of which can be taken from your pre-tax salary. It’s a three way agreement between you, your employer and us. We buy the car, your employer deducts the lease payments from your salary, and you drive away in a new car.

*Tax savings are subject to individual tax bracket and the selected vehicle.
