A Fully Maintained Novated Lease is a method of salary packaging a car and its operating costs, under which an employee leases a car and the employer agrees to take on the employee's obligations under the lease, paying the monthly lease rentals and operating expenses from the employee's pre-tax income.
This is distinct from a Non-maintained Novated Lease, where only the lease rentals are deducted from the employee's pre-tax income. A Novated Lease is the most common form of salary packaging a car.
A Novated Lease is a three way agreement between an employer, employee and finance company whereby the employee enters into a Car Lease (Finance Lease) with the financier and the employer agrees to take on the employee's obligations under the lease.

- Fuel & oil
- Service, maintenance & tyres
- Registration & insurance
- Accident management
