How does Vehicle Salary Packaging Work?
iSentia employees across Australia can now salary package one (or multiple) motor vehicles through Simplygreen Salary Packaging.
Salary packaging is a great way to acquire a new (or pre-loved) vehicle and pay for the finance and running costs using your pre-tax salary. Doing this can potentially save you thousands of dollars each year!
“Salary packaging” or “salary sacrificing” involves an arrangement between you and iSentia whereby you agree to forego (sacrifice) part of your future entitlements to salary, in return for a fully maintained motor vehicle (“Novated Lease”).
How much can you save?
Savings will vary depending on a number of factors such as the type of vehicle, number of kms you travel and your annual salary. Broadly speaking, you will enjoy savings in the following areas:
|Fleet Discounts off the Purchase Price||iSentia employees will be eligible for manufacturer & dealer fleet discounts whenever they salary package a car through Simplygreen Salary Packaging. On average, Simplygreen Salary Packaging is able to achieve a 15% discount off the recommended retail price on most makes and models nationwide.|
|GST savings||By salary packaging a car through Simplygreen Salary Packaging, iSentia employees will receive a further 10% discount off the purchase price of a vehicle due to a 10% GST credit.|
|Fleet rates on repairs & maintenance||iSentia employees will have access to negotiated fleet rates and discounts on service and repairs through some of Australia’s leading brands – O’Brien, UltraTune, Beaurepaires and more|
|Income Tax Savings||Salary packaging allows you to pay for your vehicle finance and ongoing running costs using pre-tax salary. The benefit of this is that you can reduce your taxable income quite significantly each year. The lower your ‘taxable’ income, the less income tax you pay!|
|No Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT)||Simplygreen Salary Packaging is able to structure your package in a way that eliminates any FBT. As a result, you still enjoy all the benefits of salary packaging, without incurring any FBT.|
