Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing - How It Works

What is Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing?

Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing is a type of asset finance that allows farmers and agriculture businesses to acquire the equipment and machinery they need for their operations without paying the full cost upfront. Harvest machinery refers to any equipment that is used for harvesting crops, such as combine harvesters, balers, forage harvesters, mowers, etc. These machines are essential for efficient and profitable farming, but they can also be very expensive and require regular maintenance and repairs.

By using this type of agricultural finance, farmers and agriculture businesses can spread the cost of their equipment over a period of time, while enjoying the benefits of using it.

What Types of Finance are available for Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing?

There are two main types of finance that can be used for Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing: hire purchase and finance lease.

  • Hire purchase is a type of finance where the borrower pays a deposit and then makes fixed monthly payments over an agreed term. At the end of the term, the borrower has the option to pay a final balloon payment and own the equipment outright, or return it to the lender. Hire purchase is suitable for farmers and agriculture businesses who want to eventually own the equipment and benefit from its residual value.
  • Finance lease is a type of finance where the borrower pays fixed monthly payments over an agreed term, but does not own the equipment. Instead, the lender retains ownership and leases the equipment to the borrower. At the end of the term, the borrower can either return the equipment to the lender, extend the lease, or sell the equipment to a third party and keep a percentage of the proceeds. Finance lease is suitable for farmers and agriculture businesses who want to use the equipment without worrying about its depreciation or maintenance costs.

How Does it Work?

The process of applying for Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing is simple and straightforward. Here are the steps involved:

  • Step 1: Contact Clifton Private Finance, a specialist broker that can source lenders and organise types of finance for Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing. We will discuss your requirements, budget, and preferences, and help you decide which type of finance is best for you.
  • Step 2: We will search our network of lenders and find the best deal for you. We will compare rates, terms, and conditions, and negotiate on your behalf to secure the most favourable offer.
  • Step 3: We will guide you through the application process and help you with the paperwork and documentation. We will also liaise with the lender, the equipment supplier, and any other parties involved to ensure a smooth and hassle-free transaction.
  • Step 4: Once your application is approved, you can take delivery of your equipment and start using it for your farming operations. You will then make regular payments to the lender according to your agreement, until the end of the term.

What are the Benefits of Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing?

Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing offers many benefits for farmers and agriculture businesses, such as:

  • Improved cash flow: By spreading the cost of your equipment over a period of time, you can preserve your working capital and use it for other purposes, such as paying wages, buying supplies, or investing in growth opportunities.
  • Access to the latest equipment: By using Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing, you can access the latest and most advanced equipment and machinery for your farming operations, without having to pay the full price upfront. This can help you improve your productivity, efficiency, and profitability, as well as comply with environmental and safety regulations.
  • Tax benefits: Depending on the type of finance and leasing agreement, you may be able to claim tax deductions on your payments, interest, or depreciation. This can help you reduce your tax liability and increase your net income. However, you should always consult your accountant or tax adviser before making any decisions.
  • Flexibility and convenience: By using Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing, you can choose the equipment, the lender, the term, and the payment schedule that suit your needs and preferences. You can also have the option to own, return, or upgrade your equipment at the end of the term, depending on your agreement.

Are There any Drawbacks?

Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing also has some potential drawbacks that you should be aware of, such as:

  • Additional costs: By using Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing, you may end up paying more than the original cost of the equipment, due to the interest and fees charged by the lender. You may also have to pay for the maintenance, insurance, and repairs of the equipment, depending on your agreement.
  • Risk of default: By using Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing, you are entering into a legally binding contract with the lender, and you are obliged to make your payments on time and in full. If you fail to do so, you may face penalties, legal action, or repossession of the equipment. This can also damage your credit rating and affect your future borrowing ability.
  • Risk of obsolescence: By using Harvest Machinery Finance and Leasing, you may be stuck with equipment that becomes outdated, inefficient, or unsuitable for your farming operations, due to technological changes, market fluctuations, or regulatory changes. This can affect your competitive edge and profitability, as well as your ability to sell or return the equipment.
