What Happens To The Novated Lease When I Change Employer?

If you’ve entered into a novated leasing arrangement with your current employer, you will be able to continue benefiting from the agreement even if you leave the company. Arranging A Novated Lease Novated leases are a popular and cost-effective option for employees who are looking to buy or lease a vehicle for business use, without having to pay GST. A novated lease is a form of salary sacrifice that involves setting aside a portion of an employee’s regular wage for payments towards the cost of a new vehicle. What Happens When I Change Jobs? Novation agreements are fully transferrable. This means that if a lessee leaves their current job or has their position terminated, they will still be able to make payments towards a novated lease, with the lease obligations being transferred directly to the employee rather than their employer. In some cases, a new employer may take on the lease obligations. Employees who are planning on changing jobs or who are concerned about losing their jobs should contact their novated lease Read More

The Ford Ranger XL

Need a new work ute? Perhaps the new Ford Ranger XL is the car for you. In this video Steve Colquhoun of drive.com.au reviews the latest Ranger XL. Here’s what he had to say. The Ranger XL: Combining Comfort and Power Aussie designed and engineered, the Ford Ranger comes with a choice of two diesel engines and one petrol unit. Here Steve is driving the XL model, a 3.2-litre 5-cylinder turbo diesel. The Ranger is strong and flexible, and, says Steve, lacks the harsh rattling sound of some of its competitors. The big, flexible cabin boasts five wide seats and plenty of leg and head room in the back. It is well insulated from road and engine noise and is suited to families or work-crews. The Ranger turns corners without any significant body roll. There is a choice of a six-speed manual or a six-speed auto. The manual shifting is light to the touch and intuitive. The chunky dashboard was inspired by power tool design, making the instrumentation clear and Read More

“I Will Definitely Recommend Fleet Network” – Thanks Mark and Sheri

Vehicle is going great. We can’t thank the staff at Fleet Network enough for their support and assistance during the process of leasing the vehicle and then what eventuated after that. Special thanks to Sasha for her all of her help. She kept us continually updated on the vehicle. She also helped us out with an unexpected issue with the vehicle upon delivery and without her assistance we would have had to delay a planned holiday. We would also like to thank you Carole for your support with the fuel voucher and other matters relating to the vehicle. You were in regular contact and that was and is appreciated. I will definately recommend Fleet Network to colleagues considering leasing a vehicle in the future. Thanks again, Mark and Sheri

Are Novated Leases Only For Brand New Cars?

Novated leasing is a cost-effective and tax-efficient way for employees to buy or lease a car through their employers or directly with financiers. Through novated leasing, lessees can save money when purchasing new or used vehicles. Vehicles available for novated leasing Novated leasing is not only available for new cars, but due to the rapid depreciation in value of some vehicles, these arrangements are not usually offered for cars more than three years old. Employees who choose to take advantage of novated leases can purchase vehicles of their choice, or leasing providers can provide assistance sourcing a suitable car. There may be some restrictions on the type of vehicle that can be purchased, with exclusions for vehicles that do not have Australian Compliance Plates, weighing in excess of one tonne carrying capacity or for certain classes of vehicles, such as motorcycles. Novated lease providers usually work with dealerships, but lessees have the option of choosing their own dealer if they prefer.

“I would like to say a big thank you to Sasha who provided me a very valuable service, she has been very patient, friendly and always providing me up dates on my current vehicle on order. I currently work for defence and as you probably do not know our movements can be stressful at times and have requested to have my vehicle delivered to me before the delivery date of December 12. Even though Sasha has been informed by Holden that the said due date will still occur on December 12, she is trying really hard to have this vehicle delivered to me at the earliest opportunity due to my transfer taking place on December 16. Once again thank you and I am looking forward to doing business with you during the course of my lease through Fleet Network and I will highly recommend your company to Defence and to family members.”

“I’d like to thank you and the Fleet Network team for the professional and friendly assistance I received throughout the process and renewing my car. The whole team ensured I knew everything that was happening and a special thanks to the lady who I signed the final paper work with on the hand over day, she was so nice. I have since mentioned you guys and the service you provide to a few of my friends and hope that if they choose to go down this path then they will certainly be looked after. Once again thank you all so much, I will see you all again at the end of my lease for a new one, apparently my son will have his licence by then and has already claimed my car.”

“I first started dealing with Fleet Network in 2002 when I got in touch and spoke to Matt. I was a bit wary as I had never financed a car this way before but Matt talked me through everything and put me at ease. I told him the things I was looking for in a car and before I knew it he had arrived with a Toyota Corolla for me to test drive. I tested it, he went through the costs, which were almost negligible, and the car has been going beautifully ever since. It’s been passed through the family but Matt was right, it was exactly what I was looking for and has been a great car. Since then I have bought 3 more cars through Fleet Network. I can’t recommend them highly enough – they are really good people, so friendly and they always follow through on their promises. Everyone I know who has dealt with them has commented that Fleet Network really do care.”

“We have a big family and when we first started dealing with Greg from Fleet Network earlier this year he pushed and pushed to get us into a car big enough for us all and one that would work within our budget. He just wouldn’t give up! We now drive a Hyundai iMax, which is perfect for us. We rang him up so many times with questions but nothing was ever a hassle for him. When Greg went on holiday and Jodie took over it was exactly the same – they were phenomenal. They really did go above and beyond what they had to do in order to help us. Would we recommend Fleet Network? We already do recommend them, to everyone. They have been just so friendly and helpful and worked so hard for us. We can’t thank them enough.”

“This is the third vehicle we have bought from Fleet Network. We keep going back because we get such great service and good value for money from the vehicles we buy. We’ve currently got a Honda Odyssey Luxury, which is a great family car. We always do our own research first and then just call them up and tell them what we want. They source it, give us the price, do all the paperwork and then we just go and pick it up. It’s so simple. The hardest part is choosing the car we want! As to recommending them, anytime we have friends looking for a car we recommend Fleet Network. They’re a good company and everyone we recommend has had a good experience.”

“This is the third car that I have bought through Fleet Network. I change my car every three years and this time I wanted a VW Beetle convertible, my dream car, and there was only one left in Australia. Fleet Network managed to find the car for me and get it sent over from the dealer over east. They were fantastic. They then held onto it for me while I got my other car ready for exchange, a process that was delayed due to hail damage from the storms. There were further delays as things got held up with the insurance company but Fleet Network was brilliant. They kept me up-to-date with everything and waited while I got it all sorted out. I would definitely recommend them. They are really friendly and helpful and everyone I have spoken to has been brilliant.”

“The vehicle is everything we thought it would be as it’s our third Santa Fe, second diesel. A lot more refined than the earlier model, none the less both Joanna and myself are very happy with it. Right from the start when we spoke with Tim nothing was too much trouble and if there was a query then our contact persons were only too happy to attend to our questions with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. I have passed on to other staff members your company name and hopefully they will be in touch with yourselves in the future.”
