What is a Novated Lease?

A novated lease is a finance arrangement used with salary packaging. It simply means that your employer pays for your car lease and car running costs out of your salary package through a combination of pre-tax and post-tax salary deductions.

A novated car lease allows you to drive the car you want - any make or model, without compromising your lifestyle. It could save thousands on the purchase price and running costs of a new or used car, or even the car you currently drive.

It also gives you the convenience of cashless motoring. Plus you can access TFM’s discount programs for great deals on finance, fuel, maintenance and repairs.
