Ford Novated Leases

Ford vs Holden? No competition, right? If you’re looking to lease a Ford, it’s safe to say there are plenty of options. However, one of the best and most affordable ways to secure a brand new Ford is through a novated lease.

A novated lease gives drivers all of the convenient benefits of leasing, without any of the usual stress. Not convinced? Read on to see why novated leasing with Clear Lease is the right move for you.

How does a novated lease work?

Novated leasing allows employees to lease a vehicle through their salary packaging. Each pay cycle, their employer will deduct a fixed cost from their salary, financing the car, as well as the maintenance operational, and insurance costs.

One of the biggest benefits of novated leasing is the fact that the payments are taken from your pre-tax salary, leaving you with a lower taxable income and saving a load of money!

Once you’ve decided a novated lease is the best way forward, you’ll be able to choose from a range of the latest and greatest that Ford has to offer. You’ll also be able to use your vehicle for pleasure as well as business, which isn’t always the case when you get a car through your employer.

When the lease comes to an end, you’ll be presented with a few different options. Firstly, you can pay off the residual amount due on the vehicle. This amount is outlined by the ATO and paying it will result in you taking full ownership of the car.

Alternatively, you can refinance the residual or re-establish your existing lease for an additional term. The choice is completely up to you, but we’ll always be on hand to offer the help you need to find the best solution. Often people upgrade their vehicle into the newer model and continue with their novated lease arrangement, once you get a taste of the savings you can make you’ll never look back.

Novated leasing is by far the simplest and most stress-free way to get a new car. Plus, thanks to the tax savings that you’ll be making, your money will go further which will open up your options for buying a better car. If you’re looking to drive your dream car, then you should definitely be considering taking out a novated plan with Clear Lease.

Here are some of the other impressive benefits that a novated lease has to offer:

  • You don’t have to pay GST on the purchase price of the vehicle, saving you thousands!
  • Flexible plans. There are a number of different novated leasing plans to match your lifestyle and income level.
  • You’re always in the drivers seat and will never be stung by unexpected charges.
  • Discounted fuel, maintenance and insurance. Since we manage a large volume of vehicles, we’ve negotiated some amazing discounts with our fuel and maintenance partners for our customers.
  • We can help you source the car of your dreams at a discounted rate so you can drive a brand new car for less.
  • Save money by reducing your income tax.

Drive the car you want without compromising your lifestyle

Buying a new Ford can be expensive. Aside from the upfront cost of the vehicle, you’ve also got fuel, maintenance, rego and insurance to take into account. These costs can quickly add up and bills arrive on your doorstep at inconvenient times of the year where funds may not be easily available. Many car owners end up having to make compromises on their lifestyle to afford them.

With novated leasing, everything can be taken care of in a single payment. As a result, you’ll always know exactly how much will be paid each pay cycle and can rest easy knowing that you’re never going to have to shell out loads of cash for maintenance, insurance rego, and repairs in one hit.

You shouldn’t have to make sacrifices in order to get your dream car. Take out a novated lease and you can drive what you want, without draining your bank account.

An added bonus with Novated Leasing is that you don’t pay a deposit on the vehicle, keeping your savings tucked away for a rainy day AND you don’t pay GST on the purchase price of the vehicle!
