Upon the commencement of TAMS 3 payments announced today by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, IFA National Rural Development Chair John Curran emphasised the importance of the maximum number of farmers being paid promptly.  

More broadly, TAMS reference costs are very much out of kilter with prevailing costs of materials. Investment ceilings and costs need to be reviewed upwards to better reflect the new cost realities. This is particularly relevant given Revenues changed perspective on items eligible for VAT 58 reclaims,” John Curran said. 

“There also needs to be greater minimisation of bureaucracy/verification to speed up the whole process and help ensure all funding is fully utilised. Any unused funding within TAMS must be retained and re-circulated for future tranches to support on-farm investment,” he said.
