Farm Machinery Purchase Agreement

12. BUYER`S DELAY: The time following the contract is essential and each of the following events constitutes a delay by the buyer: the rental contract determines for the machine a residual value corresponding to the value of the machine at the end of the rental period. The residual value is, in accordance with the agreement, the responsibility of the tenant, the seller or a third party. The younger generation bought another tractor in the third year. In this case, the tractor was purchased without the help of the older generation. Again, an older tractor was sold, with the product going to the older generation. The remaining assets were amortized by straight-line depreciation and a salvage value of 20% of the original price. Annual contributions for the third year were $86,971 for the younger generations and $108,892 for the older generation. The net rent for the third year was $21,920 ($108,892 $US least $86,971).

1. Outright Sale: There is an outright sale when ownership is transferred to the buyer and the seller is paid in full at once. 2. Tempe sale: the buyer immediately receives the possession and use of machines, but the seller receives payment according to a fixed schedule. 3. Progressive Selling: This type of sale is when a line of machines is sold simultaneously one or two items. 4. Lease with purchase option: this option allows a party to rent the equipment for a fixed period of time and purchase the equipment after the conclusion of the lease agreement.

5. Progressive sale rental: this option is for parties wishing to rent several devices and acquire them during the terms of the rental agreement. 6. Purchase of rollover: this type of agreement allows the buyer to acquire new devices every year or almost. The buyer pays the difference between the price of the new model and the payment indemnity for the old one. This allows the buyer to have a new machine that is usually still guaranteed, eliminating repair costs. This type of purchase can also be used to buy devices that are one or two years older and are not brand new to reduce costs. There are many methods for transferring ownership of agricultural machinery. As described by Edwards and Hofstrand (2013), these methods include direct selling, tempet selling, progressive selling over a period of years, lease, and gift.

These five methods have their own advantages and disadvantages in terms of financial considerations and income tax considerations. The fourth method outlined by the authors, the lease, is attractive when it comes to a situation where an older generation on the farm is trying to transfer farm machinery to a younger generation. Leases may include a call option or a phased sale. Leasing contracts often reduce the cash flow needs of younger generations. Rents are taxed as they are collected by the landlord (usually of the older generation) and are a deductible expense for younger generations. To comply with IRS guidelines, leasing must adequately reflect the value of agricultural machinery. Agricultural machinery is a long-term investment for farmers and allows them to use the machinery as collateral to invest in other business projects, but it is important that they know the impact of any agreement they make for the purchase. Rincker Law, PLLC can help design sales contracts that address these concerns. Assuming an average machine life of 10 years, straight-line economic depreciation and an occasional 5 percent tax for interest, in order to receive annual contributions for each part, we would multiply agricultural machinery investments by 15% for each part. The annual contributions are then offset to obtain the net credit payment. The initial and final values of starting, finishing or average agricultural machinery may be used to make the investment of agricultural machinery for each part.
