How does a Novated Lease work for Department of Social Services (DSS) employees?

If you work for the Department of Social Services, Fleet Network can provide you with a novated lease through salary sacrifice.

Fleet Network’s Department of Social Services (DSS) 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 (an employee of DSS), your employer (The Government) and the finance company, allowing you to save thousands by reducing your salary prior to tax. A popular process also referred to as Salary Sacrificing or Salary Packaging.
