At BMW Finance we understand that you may be looking for flexibility in financing your vehicle, including potential tax benefits. It’s for this reason that we offer a novated lease option for your BMW.

 

A novated lease arrangement is only available if you are an employee and your employer agrees to the novated lease salary sacrifice arrangements. Please check with your employer.

WHAT IS A NOVATED LEASE?

A novated lease is a three-way arrangement between you, your employer, and BMW Finance. Your employer pays your monthly vehicle lease payments out of your pre-tax salary. You may be able to achieve certain tax benefits from this salary sacrifice arrangement. If you change employer, you can generally continue the salary sacrifice arrangement with your new employer if they agree.


By adding the BMW Full Circle guaranteed future value option to your lease, you could choose to return the vehicle to us with no further liability (subject to satisfying fair wear and tear and kilometre requirements).

WHAT IS “SALARY PACKAGING” AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?

WHAT IS “SALARY PACKAGING” AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?

Usually (without salary packaging), your employer deducts income tax from your salary, then pays you the net amount, which is your take home pay. Any finance instalments you have for a vehicle are then paid out of your take home pay. With salary packaging under a novated lease arrangement, your employer effectively reduces your taxable income by the amount of your lease payments. Paying the lease payments with pre-tax dollars (or sacrificing your salary) reduces your taxable income and therefore your Pay As You Go (PAYG) tax liability.

The benefit you receive from a salary packaged vehicle may be considered a “fringe benefit” for which fringe benefits tax (FBT) may be payable. Certain FBT exemptions may apply, though, to reduce or remove your FBT liability (for example, certain employers or qualifying fully electric vehicles). In addition to the possible PAYG tax benefits, a novated lease may also enable you to benefit from GST input tax credits which BMW Finance and your employer may be able to claim through the novated lease arrangement.

Estimated weekly cost to take home pay:

Your take home pay (after taxes and lease payments are deducted), especially where FBT exemptions apply, could be higher by salary packaging a novated lease, than a non-packaged finance.


You should speak to your tax advisor or accountant about any tax benefits or implications a novated lease may have for you, taking into account your personal circumstances.
