The novated lease agreement will end with your current employer, but the finance lease between you and your finance company can remain intact. You just keep making the lease payments – but of course, this means you can’t package any of the repayments or gain any tax benefits. If you wish to finalise your lease contract early, you have to contact the finance company to talk about finalising any amount owing on the vehicle.
You can pay out your lease early, but you need to check your pay-out figure to see if the remaining balance is in line with the market value of your car. We would recommend getting to the 75% point of your lease before breaking it early.
When your lease comes to its end you can purchase the vehicle, and you’ll need to pay out any residual value, arrears or overdue interest. Or, if you wish to purchase the car, you can refinance it for a new term. Another option is to replace the car with another, and take out a new agreement.
This is the amount left owing on the vehicle at the end of the lease term. This is a fixed amount that is set by the ATO at the start of the lease. Residuals help to keep monthly repayments down.
A Novated car lease is considered the last decent ATO-approved tax break, and it is available for all employer-approved PAYG employees, regardless if they use their vehicle for private or business use.
