The ATO set stringent guidelines on residual values and sets these as percentages based on the lease term. For example if your lease is over 5 years your residual value must be between 25 to 35% of the vehicle cost at purchase. If you choose a vehicle that holds its value any money you receive over the residual value is your to keep, tax free. After choosing the vehicle getting the best price is just as important.
