Common reasons why our clients use agricultural finance

Purchasing new vehicles
You need the right tools for the right job. Updating assets can be costly in the short term, but necessary to drive new revenue.

Purchasing new farmland
Additional acreage or a unique property opportunity may come available at any time and often at short notice.

Farmers have used their capital to expand increasing revenue and reduce risk.

Renewable energy
Renewable energy projects can be a welcome source of additional income and enable under-utilised land on a farm to become profitable. Or even turn waste products into revenue. Government incentives are only adding to the appeal of renewable energy. Construction finance could allow the farmer to retain ownership of the entire business and then access cheaper funds once the project is operational.

Farmers can develop, renovate or repair property for capital appreciation and income generation.

Livestock finance
Farmers often need finance to expand their livestock holdings, where facilities can allow them to make informed purchases or sales.

Tenancy right to buy
Tenant farmers sometimes have a right to buy their land. Brookfield Finance may be able to help with a loan based on the open market value of the land. As opposed to the actual discounted purchase price.

Recovery and restructure
To take control and rationally plan during times when financial pressure is acute.

Hire purchase

Hire Purchase

  • Hire Purchase is one of the most well-known ways of buying large agricultural items like vehicles and farm equipment.
  • You pay a deposit (which is typically 10% of the total price). Next, you make regular monthly payments to complete the purchase.
  • The long-term commitment that you make is for the purchase of the item/s involved, however, full ownership does not actually pass to you until the final payment is made.
  • Equipment, machinery or vehicles may be repossessed if you default on the agreed monthly payments.

Agricultural Finance Lease

  • With a finance lease, you do not own the machinery or vehicle, but you will have sole use of them.
  • You pay a rental fee and are usually responsible for the upkeep.
  • An agricultural finance or farm finance lease is usually for the long-term. Stretching over the working life of the machinery or asset.
Finance lease
Operating lease

Operating Lease

  • An operating lease, however, is generally used for a much shorter term. For example, one to five years instead of the lifetime of the asset.
  • The leased equipment is returned to the lender at the end of the agreement.
  • Or, the operating lease is renewed through the mutual agreement of a new lease.
