Third-Party JTC Build and Lease Scheme

Third-Party JTC Build and Lease Scheme is to Facilitate Industrialists / Owners to Offload Assets to Lighten Balance Sheet for JTC Facility.

To facilitate private sector participation in the industrial market, JTC allows third-party facility providers to be their lessees if they engage in "Third-Party Build and Lease" (Third-Party B&L) or "JTC Sale and Leaseback" (S&LB) scheme.

    • The Third-Party JTC Build and Lease - B&L scheme enables key and strategic industrialists to appoint a qualifying third-party facility provider to undertake the development of a customised facility under JTC Design & Build according to the industrialist's specifications. In return, the industrialist undertakes to lease the facility from the third-party facility provider under a set of negotiated terms and conditions agreed between them. The Third-Party JTC Design & Build - B&L scheme provides companies with the option of operating in customised facilities without having to pay the development costs up front.
    • Under the S&LB scheme, the industrialist assigns the completed facility to the third party facility provider, who in turn leases back the facility to the industrialist for continual usage.
