Novated leasing

A novated lease with SG Fleet is a great way for many Australian employees to get a new car. It's cheaper, you pay less tax, and it's an easy way to save lots of time and effort.

SG Fleet's buying power means easy discounts and savings on vehicle purchase price and running costs. Paying with pre-tax salary deductions is a more tax effective use of your money. A novated lease means you save GST on vehicle purchase and running costs. And with an expert fleet management company taking care of your car maintenance and administration, you just have to enjoy the driving.

You might even sell the car at the end of the lease and pocket a tax-free profit before you jump in your new novated lease car.

How novated leasing works

A novated lease is an agreement between you, your employer, and SG Fleet.

You choose the car you want and all the estimated costs to keep that car running are bundled into an agreed, fixed payment that's deducted from your salary.

The obligation for the payment is transferred (or 'novated') to your employer who makes deductions via payroll, and pays SG Fleet directly.

SG Fleet will monitor your driving habits and car expenses to ensure your novated lease budget stays on track.

Benefits of novated leasing

Less income tax 

When you package your car with SG Fleet, payments are made from your salary before tax is taken out; reducing your taxable income and the amount of tax you pay. You are being tax-effective and getting more out of your salary. 

If you do it yourself, you earn a salary, pay income tax, and then use what’s left to pay the car finance and operating costs. So even if you could get the same car at the same cost, it would leave you with less in your take home pay compared to packaging with SG Fleet.


   

GST savings 

With a novated lease from SG Fleet, you pay no GST on the vehicle purchase price, fuel, and vehicle maintenance and repair costs.

FBT and ECM 

Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) applies to novated lease vehicles and is applied at the same rate regardless of kilometres travelled.  

SG Fleet uses the Employee Contribution Method (ECM) on novated leases. This is where a portion of the vehicle lease cost is deducted as an ‘employee contribution’ from your post-tax salary effectively eliminating the FBT and improving the tax-effectiveness of your novated leasing arrangement.  

By reducing or elimination the FBT lowers the overall packaging cost and increases the employee’s disposable income.
