Help your staff transition to a tax-free electric vehicle

Novated leasing for employers - give your employees a $6,482 pay rise at no cost to you

EVs will soon be tax free under a novated lease - No GST, No Income Tax, on all EVs under $84,916!

The Australian government is trying to reduce the cost of electric vehicles in order to increase the take-up across Australia. To do this the Government has tabled proposed changes to the Tax Act which make EV and PHEV vehicles that fall under the $84,916 luxury limit, 100% FBT exempt.

What does this mean and how does it compare to Salary Packaging a normal vehicle?
Employees who Salary Package an EV under $84,916 on a Novated Lease will be able to pay 100% of the lease costs and all associated running costs including charging, insurance, registration, tyres and servicing before tax, which means they pay no tax and no GST on these costs. Prior to this legislation if an employee was to salary package a car, the car would attract FBT (20% of the vehicle value excluding on road costs). The new legislation makes all EV's up to $84,916, FBT exempt. This means employees can pay for the lease and all running costs pre-tax.

If you haven't offered Novated Leasing, now is the time!

NO COST! NO ADMINISTRATION! FREE Salary Packaging Service to all Employers

If you haven't offered Novated Leasing to your employees, this new legislation now makes it essential. Further down this page we provide the numbers that show the difference this legislation makes to an employee on $80,000 wanting to purchase a $45,000 vehicle.

In summary, a Novated Lease on a $45,000 EV will save the employee over $32,000 in tax over a 5 year lease, costing only $162 a week to run the vehicle. This is life changing for most employees who currently pay half this in fuel alone.

Benefits to employers

EDEA Energy, in partnership with Vehicle Solutions Australia, provides a simple, efficient, and free Salary Packaging service to all employers. Salary Packaging for most employers including Government departments, is the cornerstone to employee benefits and rewards. Our service is quick and easy to establish and best of all, can save your company money and time in administration. Salary Packaging, through a novated lease provides the perfect alternative to company vehicles. No more administration, no more receipts, and if an employee leaves, the vehicle leaves with them.

  • Reward employees with tax & GST saving

    The most popular item to Salary Package is a vehicle. Employees can begin saving by using our unique new vehicle quoting system. Our experienced staff then guide each employee through one on one salary packaging quotes explaining every detail in plain english how Salary Packaging works. Only then do we establish a package and the employee begins their tax savings. This is a true reward to all staff at no cost or risk to the employer.

  • Cost Neutral

    Managing a complete Salary Packaging service internally is both time and resource demanding; receipts, claims, FBT reporting, GST claims, fuel reconciliations, FBT and income tax regulations…

    we have the systems to provide the complete service to employers of any size for FREE.

    Full FBT and GST reporting and no reconciliations.

  • No risk to you, the employer

    The employer is never at risk. This is simply a finance contract for the lease with a novation deed attached. The deed binds the three parties together whilst the employee works for the employer. The employer, through a salary sacrifice arrangement, will make the payments for the vehicle to the leasing company through the Salary Packaging Provider. This means that if the employee leaves employment for any
    reason the deed is automatically broken and
    the employee is then responsible to make the
    finance payments. NO RISK to the employer.

  • Reduce company car costs

    Every business looks for ways to reduce overheads. Company vehicles are a burden, not only on a company’s finances, but on the company's administration. Fuel receipts, insurance, purchase, disposal, fleet management, vehicles sitting idle, FBT calculations and costs. Salary Packaging offers the only real option to reduce these costs. This is a “win win” position. Employees get their
    choice of vehicle depending on their needs, and we manage every cost on that vehicle. If the employee leaves, the vehicle leaves with them. No risk, all reward.
