Salary Packaging for NT Defence Force Employees

You might not already know, but as a NT Defence employee, you are automatically eligible for a novated lease via salary sacrifice. This means you can now save thousands by using your pre-tax income to finance the car of your dreams. Which means that Toyota Hilux you’ve always wanted can now be yours.

Also referred to as a novated lease, salary packaging or salary sacrifice is an arrangement whereby your employer (NT Defence Force) agrees to finance your used or new vehicle, including its running costs, from your pre-taxable income.

At Fleet Network, our team facilitate a three-way agreement between you, your employer, and the finance company, which allows you to save thousands of dollars by reducing your salary prior to tax.
