TAMS

    Hi guys, I'm new to this so I'm a little confused here. I'm currently sitting the green certain online in order to qualify as a young farmer. I read on agri land that if I have a farm safety code training done and am sitting the green certain that I qualify for entitlements this year. Long story short, I was at the farm safety code of practice today and that was grand. How do I apply for TAMS or is that closed?

    Many thanks.

    Not sure about that. When I checked earlier this year I think that there was a tranche opening up at the start of October.

    Sorry i was wrong must have read april about something else just checked it up.... this was on an article on farmersjournal

    The current tranche of TAMS II opened on 1 July and will remain open until 6 October.

    The next tranche opens the following day and will remain open until 12 January 2018.

    Applications can only be made online through the Department’s agfood.ie facility. This can be carried out through an applicant’s own account or their agents.

    Sorry, think you could be right there MF. I just checked again and the last tranche closed on Oct 6th. When I checked earlier in the year there definitely was a tranche starting on Oct 7th to January but this seems to be gone now.

    I've applied for two rounds of TAMS this year, got the approval for the first one but denied the second on the basis I hadn't met the minimum threshold of €2k.
    I'm appealing it on the basis that if I was to go to the maximum they would aggregate my applications, therefore it stands to reason they should aggregate my applications also.

    Anyone have any history with this?

    Any one know if you can upgrade an internal farm track under TAMS.

    I doubt it. Tams is really a subsidy for engineering firms.

    Hi All.
    Hoping someone can enlighten me a bit..
    I am thinking of putting up a slatted shed with associated works and applying for tams.
    I will be eligible for 40%
    My situation is as follows. I've worked at farm building , formwork and metal fabrication for years so I'll be doing alot of the work myself.
    These will be my approximate figures..
    Actual spend on materials €30000 incl vat
    Own labour plus own machinery €15000 incl vat.
    Question. Can I claim all vat back on the €45000 @ 23%?
    I understand that I submitt all invoices less vat.
    So I will be submitting invoices worth €36,585.
    In a perfect world with everything spot on is it realistic to expect to get back 40% of this.?
    Leaving the works costing me €21,951.00.
    Considering my own labour has not actually cost me anything but time and sweat. .. But my time is valued at €12,195 plus vat (€15,000)
    If I take this €12,195 form the €21,195.00 I get €9000 as my total cost once all is complete!
    Am I dreaming or have I completely misunderstood how the system works ! 🀗

    You will get 40% back on the dept reference costings or 40% back on Your own costing if lower than the dept costings.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,167 ✭✭✭ cute geoge


    Will you get the grant for making up the shed??
    I taught only grant will be paid on sheds made by manufacturer with ce cert

    The farmer can weld up the shed himself and get the grant but they would have to get a cert before starting it.. costs 500ish i think. Any purchased sheds need to be CE certified..

    What's the process in receiving the money, do I have to pay the whole cost first and then get the grant back? Will be finishing a build in the next month or so, so want to know where I'm at?
