evee x Vehicle Solutions Offer

At evee we are always looking for ways to give back to our customers. This is why we’re excited to introduce our collaboration with Vehicle Solutions – a dedicated EV novated lease partner.

A novated lease benefits employers and employees, giving you a fully maintained vehicle while reducing your taxable income. As a result, the cost of leasing a Tesla Model 3 is comparable to that of a Toyota Corolla.

Vehicle Solutions allows you to choose your own insurance provider. Why not offset some of the costs of your EV through rentals? When choosing our insurance you’re covered for private use and rentals alike.

This solution is not just about leasing a vehicle; it’s a holistic approach towards facilitating a smarter, cost-effective way for EV adoption for our valued customers.

Up to $500 cashback

All customers will get $200 cashback when leased via evee plus an additional $300 cashback if you list your car on evee and complete your first booking.

So what is Novated Leasing?

In simple terms, a Novated Lease is where the car payments and costs of running your new EV (such as tyres, servicing, insurance and registration) are bundled together and deducted from your pay before tax by your employer, hassle-free, saving you time and money in the process. Your employer simply deducts the lease payment from your wage before tax, and you can decarbonise your transport and access thousands of dollars worth of savings!

Whilst Novated Leases are available on used cars, they normally provide the greatest value to drivers looking to get into a new car. And even more if that new car is electric because the Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exemption only applies to EVs.

How you’ll save

Let’s say your fortnightly gross salary is $3,000. From that $3,000, the ATO deducts $670 in tax (22%), leaving you $2,330 to spend on your living expenses, including the vehicle.

If you finance a vehicle with the usual personal financing, you will be paying this and all running costs from the net $2,330 and still paying the full $670 of Tax.

The new legislation allows you to Salary Package the finance (a novated lease) and running costs before paying any income tax (and doesn’t add any new sneaky ones).

This is where a Novated Lease will package all the purchase, finance, insurance and running costs of your new EV up into one simple payment and be deducted before the above tax is taken out. In this example, you save by not paying 22% tax on vehicle costs, or more if you are on a higher tax rate.

And because these payments are salary packaged, you also don’t pay GST, automatically saving you an additional 10% (GST) on all vehicle costs including charging and service.

Frequently asked questions

What running costs are included in the lease?

Vehicle Solutions adds all vehicle running costs to the package to enable you to claim the optimum tax benefit, including the GST savings. These include a lease, all scheduled services, tyres, registration and insurance renewals. You can always add or remove any of these running costs from your package at any time.

What happens at the end of my lease?

The car is yours and is 100% your responsibility. At the end of your lease, your options include:

  • Pay out the residual value keeping the car and own it outright
  • Trade the car in, paying out the residual value, then novate lease a new car
  • Re-lease the residual value over a new term and keep the car. A residual value is deemed by the ATO as the value of the vehicle at the end of the lease. The market value may be considerably higher.
Do I need to do anything at tax time?

No. That is one of the many benefits of Salary Packaging. You get the benefits of the end-of-year tax savings in every pay rather than waiting. So, at the end of the tax year, your employer will issue your Group Certificate showing your reduced pay and reduced tax. Nothing more for you to do.

Who is Vehicle Solutions?

Vehicle Solutions Australia has provided completely outsourced Novated Leases to private and Government sectors for over 15 years. This includes most Federal and State Government departments and a long list of small to medium-sized private businesses. They are friendly, transparent and 100% EV-ready.

Do I pay GST on the car?

The simple answer is no.

However, this works in the following manner:

  • The leasing company pays the dealership the GST included in the purchase, and then claims the total amount. This means you are financing the car exclusive of GST.
  • The payments on the lease include GST; however, as you are Salary Packaging the car through your work, your employer claims the GST and this tax saving is passed on to you. This is an ATO guideline used by all Salary Packaging companies.
What happens if I leave my job?

You have several options:

  • Vehicle Solutions can contact your new employer and discuss re-establishing your package.
  • Your new employer may have already partnered with another Salary Packaging provider. Vehicle Solutions will cancel your package and transfer all money held with Vehicle Solutions Australia to the new provider or your current employer.
  • If your new employer does not want to take on your package, Vehicle Solutions simply cancel your package, and you will be responsible for making all required payments in after-tax income as you would have without salary packaging.
