What is a novated lease?
A novated lease is an arrangement between an employer, an employee and a finance company, which allows the employee to salary package the lease payments and running costs of a car of their choice, for 100% private use.
The lease payments for the vehicle and running costs are paid from pre-tax pay, therefore your employees benefit from paying less tax. This type of lease is a tax effective alternative to buying a car outright.
Prosperity Smart Drive was established in 2001 and is one of the leading providers of vehicle leasing services in Australia. Our team supports a broad client base ranging from public hospitals, to aged care facilities, charities, religious organisations, government agencies (local and state), universities, private schools, listed corporations and private businesses.
In addition to vehicle leasing services, Prosperity also offers:
