How does it work?
AGCO FINANCE buy the equipment from the dealer and then 'hire' it to you the farmer. The finance lease (hire) agreement includes a primary period of rental payments (basically repayment of capital and interest like the HP agreement) followed by an annual secondary period rental payable. Title to the equipment remains with AGCO FINANCE until disposal.
What about the VAT?
VAT is payable with each rental so there is no need to pay the VAT up front. AGCO FINANCE account for the VAT and issue appropriate VAT invoices to allow you to reclaim the VAT payable on individual rentals.
Will the payments change?
AGCO FINANCE's leasing arrangements are all at a fixed rate of interest which means that the repayments will not normally change during the primary period of the lease.
Can the payments be tailored to my cashflow?
Of course! Just like the HP option, AGCO FINANCE will be pleased to discuss the repayment profile that will best match your income.
