Novated leasing

Novated lease is an agreement between you, your employer and the provider. You enter into a finance lease and a second agreement called a novation agreement is used to transfer part of your lease payments to your employer. Once an agreement is in place your employer deducts money from your wage and the deduction is used to pay for the vehicle. This allows your car to be treated like a company car which normally provides income tax and GST savings to you.

For more information visit the QLD Government Novated Lease website.

Novated Lease Providers

Employees wanting to salary package a novated lease on a new or used motor vehicle must use the novated leasing supplier panel. Employees can contact their preferred novated leasing supplier/s from the panel to arrange one or more quotes. The novated leasing providers on the panel are listed below:

Disclaimer: It is entirely voluntary for staff to take up any offers. Staff are encouraged to review the offerings of all service providers in the market before selecting a product that suits their individual needs.

Staff Self-Care and Well-Being

Self-care at its most simplistic definition includes behaviours, activities, and skills used to take care of oneself. Within every individual, there are many different dimensions: physical, emotional, mental/cognitive, social and spiritual aspects, to highlight a few. Each of these dimensions within a person requires care, attention, and intentional behaviours to optimize overall health and well-being.

Well-Being is a broad definition to assess happiness, health, stability, purpose and meaning in one’s life. I want you to visualize a circle. And within the circle are slices, much like a pie, and each slice represents one aspect of well-being: physical, emotional, mental/cognitive, social and spiritual well-being.

"Your mental health is a priority.
Your well-being is important.
Your self-care is a necessity."
