Why buy a car with a novated lease?
From the day you decide it’s time for a new car till the day you move on to your next car, AccessPay makes it easy for you. Salary packaging a car – also known as a novated lease – works like other salary packaging arrangements in that it utilises your pre-tax income to reduce the cost of owning and running your car.
Five way you save with AccessPay
- No haggling, no sales pitch
Our significant buying power means we can achieve, on average, 25% more discount than when customers negotiate directly with the dealer. That means you can leave the haggling to us and be sure of a great price!
- No trudging from dealer to dealer
We organise your test drives with our trusted network, so you can save your weekends and enjoy the great service (and no pressure!).
- No hassles with paperwork and complicated processes
We guide you through the paperwork and set up the lease with your employer on your behalf. Deductions happen automatically, and there’s so there’s no added worry on payday.
- No big bills, no out-of-pocket expenses
All your finance and annual running costs – like fuel, servicing, insurance, registration, roadside assistance and tyres – are bundled together into a single payment deducted on payday. When you incur an expense – like fuel or servicing – the provider bills us directly, and we pay the bill on your behalf with funds set aside in your salary packaging account.
- You save thousands!
When you buy a new car, you’ll pay no GST on the service price, instantly saving 10%. And because most running costs are paid with pre-tax dollars, you save a minimum of 30%, depending on the rate at which your tax is calculated.
There are a number of different ways to pay for a new car, but does one save you more than another? Is it better just to pay cash? And what about taking out a loan against your mortgage?
The following example looks at the costs of purchasing and running a Mazda CX-5 over five years, and how a novated lease compares to other popular forms of car finance.
