Even the playing field by offering car salary packaging

We’re helping every business benefit from the big saving advantages of a novated lease. Now you can compete for staff with larger companies and the public sector by boosting salaries at no cost, while potentially minimising payroll tax and improving cash flow.

Novated leases benefit your employees and your business too

Compete with large companies

It’s a competitive labour market, and car salary packaging is a way that you can offer the same financial incentives that bigger businesses do to even the playing field.

No cost to your business

There are no start-up costs or ongoing fees. All the expenses for car salary packaging are deducted from your participating employees’ salary.

Offer significant savings

Electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) adoption in Australia is set to explode. With the introduction of no Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) for eligible* vehicles only through a novated lease, these cars will be in high demand with your employees.

Improve cash flow by minimising payroll tax

If your business qualifies to pay payroll tax, you may be able to minimise your payroll tax by reducing your employees’ taxable income through a novated lease arrangement.

Boost your employees salaries, at no cost

The cost of living is going up, and vehicle related costs are one of Australia’s biggest household expenses. Car salary packaging gives you a meaningful and impactful way to help your employees save money.

Keep your employees for the long run

It’s hard to find good people, and when you do you want to hold on to them. A novated lease is a strong retention tool. Over the past 12 months, only 4.4% of Flare leaseholders left their job since signing.

Keep your staff happy

Flare’s innovative end-to-end process is better for you, your employees, and the environment. It eliminates paperwork, saves time and reduces the effort to apply and set up a novated lease from 4 hours to within 10 minutes.
