Payment options

Today only 21% of IT staff time is devoted to innovation and new projects.

Budgets are under pressure. You need to create a strategy to manage — or even shrink — necessary expenses while you innovate. Financing is a fast and effective way to meet your business and technology objectives without losing sight of your long-term financial goals.

IBM Global Financing provides the purchasing power to create the competitive advantage and financial stability you need to save, re-invest and innovate. We offer a range of customisable payment plans, with simple contracts, rapid approvals and flexible payment structures.

We serve a wide range of clients, from small businesses to the majority of the Fortune Global 100 companies. Of course, the best financing strategy is one tailored to your organisation’s goals, which is why we’ve developed our full suite of customisable financing solutions.

Get in touch to create your unique financing plan

We offer customisable leases and loans that you can combine with other programs, offers and non-IBM equipment to craft the solution that best fits your business strategy.

Flexible leases and loans

Over 30 years, we’ve built a diverse suite of financing services that allows us to provide loans tailored to your specific needs. The foundation of our offerings has remained the same: leases and loans (starting at 5,000 USD) coupled with a full suite of additional services that meet you along every step of your IT life cycle.


We offer two basic types of leases:

Fair market value lease
A fair market value lease is the most predictable and lowest risk way to build out your IT infrastructure. You pay a fixed rate over a fixed time frame.

When your IT equipment requires upgrading, on select IBM products, you can also upgrade mid-lease, often with little to no change in your payments, while minimising IT obsolescence.

When your contract is over, you return the equipment to us.

A full payout lease
At the end of a full payout lease term, you retain ownership of the assets. After leasing the asset for a fixed price, we hand ownership over to you.

A full payout lease is best suited for assets that are stable, longer-term investments and aligned with your business strategy.


Loans help you acquire the technology you need by providing you with access to alternative sources of funds, enabling you to maximise your purchasing power with competitive rates and flexible terms.

We provide loans for hardware, software and services. The benefits include reducing upfront cost outlays, matching your payments to deployment milestones and helping you conserve cash.

Premium payment options

Our premium payment options give you several packaged choices that can be used alone or in combination with each other. From single-source financing options to using equity from your current server to finance an upgrade, our payment options provide you with balanced and cost-effective payment structures.


IBM Project Financing™
A dedicated single-source financing option

IBM Project Financing provides you with single-source financing tailored to your project’s lifecycle. By providing a dedicated funding source, IBM Project Financing helps allay the risk of delayed projects and reduces contract scope, while speeding project approval and implementation.

Open Infrastructure Offering
An open IBM infrastructure agreement gives you expandable capacity

Flexible financing can be included in your agreement to help dramatically reduce the complexity.

Consider an Open Infrastructure Offering if your IBM infrastructure plan is for three years or longer. An Open Infrastructure Offering is a forecasted payment plan with capacity on demand. The plan provides fixed capacity but gives you the option to temporarily upgrade anytime during that period. This allows you to address short-term needs with the secure knowledge that you are not losing sight of long-term goals — all with a single, simple invoice.

Get the advantages of leasing with IT equipment you’ve already purchased

If you need an immediate cash infusion and you own your IT equipment, consider a sale-leaseback: we will buy your current IBM IT assets and lease them back to you at competitive rates.

Special promotions

We have finance offerings across our portfolio including software, hardware and services. We also offer Asset Recovery Services - includes buy-back options plus secure and compliant disposal, and IBM Certified Pre-owned kit when new is not an option.
