Novated Lease FAQs
Novated leasing: the whys and hows
Cars can be expensive – and a bother to keep track of when it comes to costs and upkeep. By salary packaging a car through Maxxia, you can soften the hip-pocket pain and remove much of the hassle.
Once you’ve decided on your car (which we can also help with) we establish a simple annual budget that rolls all your car’s running costs – including finance, petrol, servicing, registration and insurance – into one regular payment using a combination of your pre- and post-tax salary.
This means potential tax savings, no more juggling bills and due dates, and you don’t pay GST on the purchase price of a new car, either!
How does novated leasing compare to a car loan?
Hold the GST
That’s right – when you source a new car through Maxxia you not only get access to our nationwide buying power, meaning competitive prices on an extensive range of new cars, but you don't pay GST on the purchase price.
Our nationwide buying power gives us access to lots of great cars – and great deals.
Potential tax savings
Because part of your car payments come from your pre-tax salary, your taxable income could be less. (Once your deductions commence, your payslip will show the pre- and post-tax deductions made to Maxxia relating to your novated lease.) With a regular car loan, you’d be making payments with your post-tax salary – and giving more to the taxman.
Access to competitive third-party pricing
As one of Australia’s leading novated lease providers, we have long-held relationships with suppliers and insurers nationwide, and can help you get competitive prices. No more worries about insurance coverage and over-charging mechanics.
Roll up, roll up
Cruising along an open road in your new car aside, it’s the convenience of a novated lease that many enjoy. In addition to your car repayment, all of those dreaded running costs – fuel, servicing, insurance and, most pertinently, registration – are rolled up into one regular payroll deduction. And the cherry on top? You could save on tax!
I prefer vehicle ownership over leasing – why should I lease?
A novated lease allows you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for your car’s repayments and many of the running costs that you’d ordinarily have anyway – including big-ticket items such as registration, insurance and servicing – which could lower your taxable income while providing you with the peace of mind of having everything pre-budgeted for.
Plus, at the end of the lease, you have the option of upgrading to a new car while continuing to enjoy the convenience and tax benefits of salary packaging a car.
