Leasing for agriculture, forest products and commercial fishing
Many producers find leasing to be a great financing option for saving costs, improving cash flow, reducing taxes and gaining added control over your balance sheet.
At Farm Credit East, you can lease almost anything you need for your agricultural, forest products or commercial fishing business, including passenger and commercial vehicles, agricultural tools and equipment, production equipment and facilities. You can work with any manufacturer you choose, negotiate the best price and we will step in with the financing support.
Farm Credit East leasing products are available with a wide variety of terms and structures, which can be customized to fit your individual needs. Our team of experts understands your business and will help you find the structure that meets your objectives.
Leasing is also conveniently available through ag equipment dealers offering AgDirect®.
Convenient terms help conserve cash
Low or no down payment, up to 100-percent financing. As a tax management tool, leasing can improve your cash flow and conserve your working capital.
Lower payments, which in most cases, are tax deductible.
The tax deductions available when you lease can save you money and improve your bottom line. Consult your tax advisor for more information.
- Tailor terms to your individual needs.
Flexible lease structures, payment schedules, end-of-lease options and maturity dates let you tailor the lease to your needs.
Our flexible terms are based on the expected use and life of the equipment you’re leasing, usually between 36 and 60 months. For large projects such as plant equipment, we can develop lease terms that accommodate your installation schedule. Interim financing may also be available to complement your lease. You can also choose your payment schedule, which is one of the benefits of leasing through Farm Credit East.
