How does a Novated Lease work for DFES employees?

If you’re a Department of Fire and Rescue (DFES) employee, Fleet Network can provide you with a novated lease through salary sacrifice.

Fleet Network’s Fire and Rescue Novated Lease is an arrangement whereby your employer agrees to finance your vehicle and its running costs from your pre-tax income. Fleet Network then facilitates a three-way novated lease agreement between you (a DFES employee or Firefighter), your employer and the finance company, allowing you to save thousands by reducing your salary prior to tax. A process which is also referred to as Salary Sacrificing or Salary Packaging.
