Benefits of Novated Lease

Why choose a novated lease instead of buying a new Volkswagen? There are stacks of benefits for a novated lease and in our opinion, novated leasing is the best and most cost-effective way to get yourself a shiny new car. It’s also super simple, taking the hassle out of buying a car through a traditional car loan (chattel mortgage) or regular lease.

So what is a novated lease and how does it work? Put simply, a novated lease is where you lease a vehicle directly through your salary packaging. You don’t have to keep track of payments – your employer and Clear Lease will take care of everything, deducting the cost from your salary and allocating funds for your expenses.

The salary deductions will cover the cost of the vehicle, running and operational costs like rego, insurance, maintenance, tyres and roadside assistance. The main benefit of choosing a novated lease is the tax benefits – the regular payments are taken from your pre-tax salary, reducing your taxable income and saving you a stack of money in income tax.

When your lease comes to an end, you’ll have the option of buying the car by paying the residual outlined by the ATO. You don’t have to do this though – many people choose to refinance or continue for another term of their lease. As with everything at Clear Lease, you’ll be in the drivers seat when it comes to making decisions. If you need help, our team can guide you through your options.

Here are some of the other unique benefits novated leases offer:

Costs associated with a Volkswagen novated lease

The amount that you’ll pay each month depends on a few different factors. These include the price of the Volkswagen vehicle you choose, your estimated kilometres, the length of the lease and the balloon size (dictated by the ATO). At Clear Lease, all of these costs will be made fully transparent – you’ll know exactly where your money is going.

Your payments will also change depending on the kind of additional services you desire. If you like, you can easily include insurance, fuel, maintenance and other running costs as part of your contract.
