Supporting TAMS II Farm Investment
At AIB, we’re backing farmers like you. If you are investing in your farm and applying for TAMS II (Targeted Agricultural Modernisation Schemes II) grant support, we have a selection of tools and guides to help you.
And, if you need finance for your farm investment, we have loans with competitive interest rates and flexible repayment options to suit you.
What is TAMS II?
TAMS II is a series of seven investment aid schemes open to farmers to support the sustainable development of Irish agriculture. It has a fund of €395 million over the lifetime of the programme (2015-2020).
The seven individual TAMS II schemes are:
- Young Farmer Capital Investment Scheme (YFCIS)
- Animal Welfare Safety and Nutrient Storage Scheme (AWNSS)
- Dairy Equipment Scheme (DES)
- Pig and Poultry Investment Scheme (PPIS)
- Organic Capital Investment Scheme (OCIS)
- Low Emission Slurry Spreading Equipment Scheme (LESS)
- Tillage Capital Investment Scheme (TCIS)
TAMS II is administered by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and applications must be submitted online via www.agfood.ie. For further information on the TAMS II schemes, please refer to the Department of Agriculture.
Supporting Your Farm Investment Finance Needs
Our farm development loans allow you to fund the long-term development of your farm without placing burdens on your short-term cash flow.
Bridging loans are available at a variable interest rate to fund farm investment (pending the receipt of TAMS II grant aid) or for VAT refunds up to €100k under TAMS II. Bridging loans must be cleared on receipt of TAMS II grant aid or VAT refund. They are available with an interest-only repayment arrangement, up to a maximum term of 12 months.
Tailored Repayments to Suit Your Business Needs
We provide flexible repayment arrangements, including interest-only options and seasonal repayment schedules that match your farm cashflow. Such arrangements may impact the repayment amount and/or term of the loan.
60k in 48 Hours
AIB customers can get approval within 48 hours* – subject to credit assessment – on new business loans and overdrafts up to €60,000.
For loans in excess of €60,000, or for any other financial requirements, we can discuss the best options for your farm business – by phone or in branch.
