Frequently asked questions

Which service stations will accept my fuel car?
The Motorpass card is accepted at all major service stations as well as many of the independents. Each service station does have a right to refuse the card, however this must be advertised by the service station.
Can I use my fuel card to pay for car washing?
Yes, but it’s up to each individual service station, best to ask them directly.
Can I salary package just the running costs?
In order to salary package the running costs of your vehicle, you must have a Novated lease, which means your car must be under finance.
Can I arrange my own comprehensive car insurance policy?
Yes, you will need to cover the initial premium up front, however you will be reimbursed once we have collected enough funds.
Can I lease more than one vehicle?
Absolutely, there is no limit on the number of leases you can have.
Will I or my employer have to pay FBT as a result of the lease?
In most cases 100% of the FBT is offset through the ECM/ post-tax contributions. The only time we don’t is when it’s beneficial for the employee. Ask once of our leasing specialists to advise what the most beneficial option for your situation would be.
What happens if I don’t spend all of my allocation for fuel, servicing, tyres and registration etc?
Any surplus in your maintenance account is returned in full at the end of the lease.
Can I lease a used vehicle?
Yes you can, but it’s up to you to locate the vehicle and negotiate the price. The car can come from a dealership, wholesaler, auction or even private sale. Good to have a pre-approval before you start shopping though.
What are my options when my residual is due?
a) Pay the residual and own the car outright
b) Extend the lease by rolling the residual value over into a new lease
c) Sell or trade in the car in with the dealer supplying your new car, the dealer will then pay your residual for you.
How is the residual calculated? Can I have no residual?
The ATO has set guidelines for minimum residual values. You can only reduce the residual below those guidelines if you are travelling a high number of kilometres each year.
Is it ok if someone else drives my car?
Yes, anyone is able to drive your vehicle. If they are a regular driving it’s a good idea to consider having them added to your insurance policy to avoid a higher excess.
What happens at tax time? Does it become more complicated?
Not at all, your group certificate will report your new reduced taxable income, factoring in your salary packaging. You are then able to use the adjusted group certificate to do your tax as normal.
Can I make modifications to the car?
Yes, you can, you are free to treat it as your own vehicle. Any major modifications should be reported to the insurance company though.
