With the end of financial year hurtling through again, many of us are left wondering how we can juggle our tax books a little better, and still remain on the right side of the law. Fortunately, there are some clever ways that you can get the little luxuries you want while levelling your tax, with very little effort. Our team of Perth novated lease experts have put their heads together, and have come up with a quick and easy guide to the Fringe Benefits Tax, so you can understand the cogs that turn behind a novated lease.

What is a novated lease?

A novated lease is a great way to work your car into your salary package, which would reduce your taxable income. Once you find the vehicle for you, find a lender who can arrange for the payments to be paid by your employer- this is valid for as long as you stay employed at the company, but any further payments will fall back to you if you lose your job or resign. Annual kilometres are taken out of your pre-tax salary, so you can end up with a fantastic new car and dropping your taxable income- which could mean saving yourself a tax bracket for the next financial year tax return.

How will the Fringe Benefits Tax affect me?

Originally, the FBT arose because of employers giving perks and side-bonuses to their more valued team members. This wasn’t usually a monetary value, but something more tangible such as a new car. The advantage of this was that there was no tax payable, so employers were able to stretch their dollar a little further while keeping their best employees happy. It took until 1996 before the top tier workers were getting more and more than their co-workers, and the FBT was introduced to try and sway the scales. This tax was to be covered by the employer on any fringe benefits, and covers any perks such as mobile phones, GPS systems, and cars. This FBT tax rate is usually affected by how many kilometres you do each year, as your car depreciates the FBT rate also decreases- however, if you’re kilometres travelled don’t meet your estimated distance at the start of the tax year, there will be surplus tax to meet the difference.
