Electric Vehicle Novated Leasing

Are you charged with EV interest?

Australia is buzzing with excitement over the Electric Vehicles (EV) , and there’s never been a better time to jump on board. With the Electric Car Discount now applied to novated leases for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, it’s the smartest way to potentially save big on your next EV.

You might already guess that we’re your go-to crew when it comes to EV novated leases. Clear Lease is one of Australia’s top novated lease providers, bringing years of expertise to the table, and we’re here to make your EV dreams come true.

How Does the EV Discount Work?

Thanks to recent legislation, novated leases for eligible battery EVs, plug-in hybrids, or plug-in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are now Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exempt. In simpler terms, you won’t have to cough up any post-tax contributions for EVs up to the Luxury Car Tax threshold of $89,332. This translates to potential tax savings that put a smile on your face.

The only catch? Your vehicle must be brand-new, or first held and used on or after 1 July 2022.

So, How Much Could You Save with an EV Lease?

Picture this: you earn $80,000, and the sleek MG ZS Essence is your ride of choice. Over a five-year lease and 20,000 kilometers per year, your estimated net benefit under the EV Discount skyrockets to $26,973*. Under the old novated lease rules, your net benefit would have been a modest $10,597*. That’s a jaw-dropping potential saving of $16,376*! What’s more, you can revel in the convenience of bundling your car’s finance repayments and all regular running costs. 

Cost bundling includes electricity, registration, insurance, and servicing – into one tidy pre-tax payment throughout the year. And let’s not forget, running an EV is a money-saver in itself. The Electric Vehicle Council calculates that a city-based SUV driver, covering 15,000 kilometers annually, could pocket over $135 in monthly running cost savings compared to traditional petrol or diesel vehicles. It’s no wonder we’re all buzzing about EVs!
