I cancelled smartsalary. Quite a few months ago. Anyway they have started taking payments out again, it has taken me a while to work out where my pay has been going. Now I've been told that it will take a couple of more weeks to get my money back quite a substantial amount of money is owing. I mean where do you people get off taking my money out without my authorisation? Don't you understand I have bills to pay and big rent.
Not smart... Dumb!!
Changeover from Selectus to Smartsalary has been nothing but frustrating...I am only able to purchase petrol through their nominated service stations and then cannot use the car wash of my choice. I must pay for it out of my own pocket and then go through the whole reimbursement process!
Very Dodgy and Dishonest
I regretibly signed up for a Novated lease through Smart Lease. I was pushed into the sale and signed up for products I didn’t want.
They did not pay anything towards the loan for the first month leaving me with a huge bill I was unaware of. They tried to ‘fix’ this by deducting an additional $285 a week for 5 weeks totalling $945 a fortnight from my pay. They continued to deduct the additional payment after the 5 week period.
Also their fortnightly deduction differed significantly from what I was originally quoted. When I signed up it was only meant to cost $500 a fortnight...
So basically my loan repayments are $800 a month but smart leasing deducts $1900 a month!!
Customer service was terrible and this never got sorted out. I’ve tried to end my lease but they refuse and I basically just get transferred to from person to person and placed on hold.
I have now asked my work to cease deductions and am paying off my load directly to the bank. However I have lost over $1000 as this is what was in my ‘reimbursements’ account (which can’t be closed or reimbursed due to lack of customer service).
Do yourself a favour and don’t get a novated lease through this company!
Need to be more forthcoming with information
Was forced to move to smart salary due to my work doing so, was at the end of my previous lease so decide to end that lease and start a new lease. what they didn't tell me (throughout many conversations about ending the old lease and starting a new lease) is that I needed to fill in a specific form to tell them (even though they were organising it) that I wanted to end my old lease. This resulted in them taking money for both the old and new cars out of my pay leaving me high and dry just after Christmas. their staff need to be better trained with dealing with new customers and explanations given.
walking a fine line with being really dodgy
I was moved from another leasing company to smart salary by my employer.
I will say that the customer service staff are knowledgeable and helpful, but they only disclose the minimum amount of information, so you need to keep pushing and asking a lot of questions to get the full details from them.
However in my opinion, it is the company overall that walks the fine line of sort of telling the truth and baffling you with a lot jargon. I have been using this company for a month now and i come away from every email and phone call with them just wondering what they haven't disclosed and how they have potentially not been fully truthful with me.
Use them if you dare, I doubt I would take another lease with them though, unless a lot changes.
AND READ ALL THE FINE PRINT
Not had a reimbursement in 3 months
Tried 3 different bank accounts with 2 different banks and no money, they say they are processing the funds but it has not made it to my account once. Not happy.
The operator was very helpful, answered all my questions and offered to send any information I required. A package arrived within the week.
Obtained a lease with them and its the worst thing I have ever done. They did not talk it through with me enough, just pushed me into the sale, interest rate is so high, and the customer service was terrible. Please do not go with them!
Worst system Full of errors!
I've been with smartsalary for over 3 years and the amount of errors in payments and delays is outstanding. I've invested so much time monitoring my payments to ensure correctness and calling and emailing smartsalary to resolve issue after issue. They miss reimbursement payments that put me out of pocket and have increased deductions of my pre tax income without notifying me further impacting on my pay!
Do not recommend, issues far exceed any financial benefit they offer.
Client service representative was very helpful, know their subject, easy to talk to and resolved my query. Well done and have recommended Snartsalary to my friends and family.
Everything was made so easy for me! Have recommended to two fellow teachers who are going to salary sacrifice a computer as well.
Received A great service. Customer service representatives are very friendly. I requested proxy form so that my partner can represent me. It was done very efficiently.
Great support by Xyrus MilitR
Xyrus was most factual and responsive in assisting me to achieve an extended warranty frogram for my CX5. His professional approach was great and he listened to my needs.

knowledgable and helpful staff
All my dealings with Smart Salary have always been professional and very helpful They are always polite and well informed
Smart Salary communication excellent and everything was organised well. Email and phone calls were thorough and pleasant. Thank you for a positive experience!
delighted with experience
My sessions with the advisor have been brilliant. Being a financial ning nong before this then my future was something to be avoided. The excellence of the ballarat branch people in advising me was superb. I may even avoid living with relatives when old and drinking from brown paper bags. Clear, no nonsense advice. Thanks
Pleasant employees, willing to help and very good knowledge of there jobs. I have now retired and had finish my packages.
I would recommend smart salary to anyone.
