Key Dates in the Farming Diary

As the busy summer months are upon us and the farming calendar is becoming increasingly full, it can often be easy to miss key dates and deadlines. Here are some important deadlines that you cannot afford to miss:

Farming Equipment and Technology Fund 2024:

Applicants have been offered items under the FETF and must accept their application online in the Farming Investment Fund service by 8th July 2024.  Applicants must have purchased and claimed for their funding by midday on 10th January 2025.

Sustainable Farming Incentive 2024 offer:

Following a recent update in May an updated offer of the SFI should be available in July 2024.

Environmental and Countryside Stewardship Annual Revenue Claims 2024:

The deadline for submitting the annual revenue claim was 15th May 2024.  However, if a claim has been missed for submission, you still have until 11:59pm on Wednesday 2nd September 2024 to submit a claim, but reductions will apply.  Leading up to the 2nd September, phased reductions are implemented – the later you submit it, the greater the reduction.

If you would like to discuss any of the upcoming dates, please contact your local AB office.
