Audi Novated Leases

Got your eye on a high-performance coupe? And the other eye on a RS5 Sportback? Don’t go cross-eyed now. Whatever Audi you’ve got your heart set on, we’ll help you get it in the most cost-effective way.

What is a novated lease?

It really isn’t that complicated. It’s just fancy language for huge tax savings. A novated lease allows you to lease your car directly through your pre-tax salary, reducing your overall taxable income.

The lease allows you to finance the cost of the vehicle and its running and operational costs like rego, insurance, fuel, maintenance, tyres and roadside assistance. The payments are then deducted by your employer from your weekly, fortnightly or monthly pay cycle from your pre-tax income. Take that taxman.

From the get-go, the ATO outlines the amount due at the end of the lease, so you can pay out the residual (the balloon payment), refinance your vehicle or extend your lease for an additional term. Long term, novated leasing will save you loads of cash. Another Audi, perhaps?

When you sign up for an Audi novated lease, you’ll be able to choose from a range of the latest and greatest Audi vehicles. And once you’ve received your new Audi, you don’t have to do a thing. Kiss goodbye the effort of making repayments and copping late fees if you miss it, the payments will be taken directly out of your salary by your employer – before the taxman takes his cut.

Benefits of an Audi novated lease

Clear Monthly Payments

The monthly payments vary depending on the Audi model you choose, the price of the vehicle, the length of the lease term and the balloon size (dictated by ATO). We’ll also take maintenance, registration, tyres and insurance costs into account, if you choose to include these as part of your lease package. This means you can spread all your annual running costs over your regular payments.

At Clear Lease, our end game is to make sure every cost is crystal clear to our customers and that they understand exactly what their novated lease covers. We pride ourselves on a what-you-see-is-what-you-get approach.

Your lease, your choice.

When it comes to deciding the expenses you want covered within your novated lease agreement, you’re in charge. Servicing and roadside assistance can be part of your package. Or not. We don’t force deals on to you – you can choose from a fully maintained novated lease (all expenses covered) or a non-maintained novated lease, letting you manage all of the vehicle maintenance costs yourself with your post-tax income.

If you choose to include insurance in your lease package, Clear Lease can also add roadside assistance to your policy for the duration of your contract. It’s just another way to make sure you’ll always be covered if you ever break down on the road.

Now let us go all Mumsy on you and remind you to review all the information in your lease carefully before you sign it. The agreement will specify exactly who pays for repairs and services, during the lease term.

Management Fees and Charges

We like you, we really do. But we do need to charge a small monthly management fee to cover our costs to manage your vehicle and all of its needs throughout the contract. This is included in your monthly payments – it’s never hidden away inside your loan package. We are up front – you’ll always know the exact breakdown of your costs when you take out a Clear Lease novated loan.

While nobody likes fees and charges, you can bet your bottom dollar it’s worth getting a novated lease. This fee will be easily recouped with the savings you make from choosing a novated lease option.

Running Cost inclusions

Our novated lease packages feature options to include all of your running costs:

  • Car registration
  • Insurance premiums
  • Fuel costs
  • Servicing & maintenance
  • Tyres
  • Regular car washing
  • Roadside assistance

You can enjoy the convenience of knowing your exact costs, all the way down to your fuel, which is managed by your fuel card.
