Time to tighten your expenditure

It may be time to finally have a look at what your current car is costing you. Have you ever considered what you are currently spending on your car now that everyone is having to tighten their belt and household budgets having to be trimmed?

A Novated Lease on your existing vehicle may be well worth exploring.

Turn your Car Loan into a Novated Lease

A novation being applied to your existing car loan would mean that you are able to enter into a novated lease agreement between yourself and your employer. This means taking your existing car loan and turning into a different finance format. In many cases, this could mean getting a lower rate, a GST concession on all the running costs and you get to pay pre-tax for the vast majority of your expenditure. You could also have the ability to stretch out the term and really help your own household cash flow by reducing your current expenditure.

Increase Your Cash Flow

Refinancing to a Novated Lease can help increase household cash flow, allow you to budget better and take away the stress of untimely large bills such as registration and insurance. Having funds in the bank can allow you to drive your income further. It may be time to take advantage of the benefits of a novated lease package and get the convenience of have all running costs included in one weekly payment.
