There are numerous leasing options available – it’s really just a case of which one is going to suit you best.
Novated Leasing – Employee Contribution Method, Logbook Method, Operating Lease, Fully Maintained Operating Lease, Tool of Trade Vehicle.....
I’ll hazard a guess by the sounds of your post they may have been referring to Novated Leasing – whereby you sacrifice a portion of your pre-tax salary for cost of the vehicle and it’s running costs over a set term (anything between 12 & 60 months). Dependent on your circumstances, cost of the car etc etc - it may reduce your tax liability.
I would strongly suggest you either talk to your accountant or check out someone like www.sgfleet.com.au
(I used to be their Collections & Repossessions Manager prior to becoming a soloist).
Also, have a look at their calculator http://www.sgfleet.com/au/salary-pac...se-calculator/
that might be of assistance to you.
