Financing

What is a JCB FlexiLease and why are the weekly illustrations generally lower than Hire Purchase?

JCB FlexiLease is an operating lease specifically designed for JCB’s. With fixed low-cost lease instalments which reflect a predicted future investment value of the machine at the end of the agreement (often resulting in lower payments compared to Hire Purchase).

Also, with VAT payable monthly with each instalment, JCB FlexiLease can be a method of acquiring the long term use of a JCB in a cost effective manner.

You will be told what the machine investment value is at the outset and within 30 days of the end of the agreement you have the opportunity to find an approved buyer, giving the supplying dealer first option. Any profit achieved above that investment value is yours!

You are protected against any loss made on disposal and you can simply return the machine to JCB Finance if you wish. Terms and return conditions apply.

You will NOT own the machine at the end of the agreement.

How long is the finance term?

The prices shown are based on a 3 + 33 monthly payment term. This means on signing you pay the equivalent of 3 monthly payments and then 33 monthly direct debit payments will be taken monthly thereafter.

On Hire Purchase when all payments have been made (including the Acceptance and Option to Purchase Fee) you will own the machine.

On JCB FlexiLease, after your 33rd direct debit you have use of the machine for a further 2 months with nothing to pay.

What will my weekly payments be?

The weekly illustrations shown are based on 3 + 33 monthly payment profiles. Your direct debits will be monthly, not weekly. The weekly illustration is to help you make a comparable budgeting decision.

Do I own the machine at the end of the agreement?

On Hire Purchase you own the machine when all payments have been made.

On JCB FlexiLease you do not own the machine at the end. Instead you have the option to return the machine to JCB Finance or you can be appointed as our agent to find a buyer, giving the supplying dealer the first option to purchase. The minimum sale price is the Investment Value as stated, plus VAT. Any price achieved over the Investment Value is yours. Terms apply.

Can I buy the machine at the end of a JCB FlexiLease?

No. The lessee (you) cannot purchase a leased asset. If ownership is important to you, Hire Purchase may be a more appropriate option. Speak to your accountant or Finance Director to see which option is most suitable for your business.
