    of vital Farm Schemes family farm taxation and social welfare issues The ICMSA delegation that met Ministers Noonan and Howlin last Thursday At the meeting Minister Noonan outlined the fact that Budgets will be earlier in future years and that the Government will need to know the value of receipts from the self employed in advance of the Budget Mr Comer pointed out that this would have a very significant negative impact on farm families as many depend on their Single Farm Payment to pay tax liabilities and we now know that farmers will not receive the first 50 percent of this payment until the 16 October Mr Comer stated that Minister Noonan must ensure the current payment date is not changed but that flexibility regarding the date for filing returns could be considered Ends McCormack expects considerable degree of activity in last Friday s Quota Exchange Shortage of Fleximilk likely says McCormack Search the site ICMSA President John Comer Newsletter ICMSA Winter 2015 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn Newsletter 2015 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2015 ICMSA Winter 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Spring 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2013 Newsletter ICMSA Summer Newsletter 2013 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2013 Presidents Speech AGM

  • McCormack expects ‘considerable degree of activity’ in last Friday’s Quota Exchange | I C M S A
    reason there s a group who are exiting milk supplying altogether Last Friday represents the last year for this group to sell their quota and if they re realistic about the price at which they ll sell then I would expect a degree of pick up from the second distinct group those suppliers looking for cover for the supply year 2014 2015 It now looks likely barring an unforeseen and very radical event that we re going to incur a superlevy this year The size of that superlevy won t be known till Summer 2014 but we can safely assume that it will be in excess of the 16 5 million that we had to pay in 2012 That s the background going into 2014 and I believe that there will be farmers taking precautions such as purchasing any quota available in this exchange to minimise the possibility of a 28 65 c L superlevy charge in the final year of quotas said Mr McCormack who is also Chairman of the Dairy Committee Ends October 11 Pat McCormack 087 7608958 Deputy President ICMSA or Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office Eirgrid agree to automatically notify ICMSA members on aerial surveys of Overhead Power Lines ICMSA tell Noonan and Howlin that farmers Pay and File deadline must remain after SFP Search the site ICMSA President John Comer Newsletter ICMSA Winter 2015 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn Newsletter 2015 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2015 ICMSA Winter 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Spring 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2013 Newsletter ICMSA Summer Newsletter 2013 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2013 Presidents Speech AGM Read more Login Events Calendar January 2016 Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19

  • Eirgrid agree to automatically notify ICMSA members on aerial surveys of Overhead Power Lines | I C M S A
    as to facilitate the movement of cattle away from the sites containing the Overhead Power Lines being surveyed ICMSA asked Eirgrid to improve communications with the landowners concerned by contacting them by either phone or text a day in advance of the helicopter flights and thus facilitating the relocation of cattle away from the fields in the flight path of the ESBN helicopters I am happy to confirm that Eirgrid have agreed with our suggestion and ESBN will now be asked by Eirgrid to make arrangements to add the names of ICMSA members to the existing list of landowners who are given advance notice of the helipatrols The aerial survey generally occurs over one week in both February and December and while we re very cognisant of its safety role there is no doubt that the flights were causing a great deal of avoidable distress to the herds immediately below ICMSA notes the response made by Eirgrid here and will continue to press that company to demonstrate the highest levels of sensitivity and congnisance to the farmers on whose co operation they depend We ll continue to watch the situation extremely closely said the well know Annascaul farmer Ends 7 October 2013 Queries to Cathal MacCarthy 087 6168758 ICMSA Press Office ICMSA say Irish R3 Steer prices have lagged EU average for over a year Meat plants explanation beyond belief McCormack expects considerable degree of activity in last Friday s Quota Exchange Search the site ICMSA President John Comer Newsletter ICMSA Winter 2015 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn Newsletter 2015 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2015 ICMSA Winter 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Spring 2014 Newsletter ICMSA Autumn 2013 Newsletter ICMSA Summer Newsletter 2013 ICMSA Newsletter Spring 2013 Presidents Speech AGM Read more Login Events Calendar January 2016 Mon Tue Wed Thu

  • Budget 2014 – ICMSA stress need for consolidation measures and protection of farm schemes | I C M S A
    for an increase in the rate of CGT to 33 representing an increase of 65 since 2008 ICMSA totally opposes any further increase and calls for the reintroduction of indexation which was withdrawn in 2002 said Mr Comer ICMSA believes that the reductions in the CAT tax free thresholds in successive budgets have been excessive and have worked as a disincentive on land transfers We believe that the retention of 90 agricultural relief for CAT is absolutely essential to ensure transfer from one generation to the next We also firmly hold that farm families should be able to avail of the same tax relief for farm leases as non related farm persons The current tax code does not allow the same tax relief for land leases to related persons as non family members which is causing difficulties for farm families that wish to lease the farm to the next generation prior to retirement age We also urge the Minister to look at a measure for Budget 2014 that will permit stock relief whereby if the receipts from the forced disposal of stock this year due to the fodder crisis are reinvested in livestock in 2014 or 2015 the farmer concerned can claim stock relief at 100 with proportionate reductions if the farmer does not invest the full amount received from the forced disposal of live stock he continued ICMSA draws attention to the National Farm Survey Preliminary Estimates 2012 that indicate that family farm incomes fell by 15 in that year The cuts to farm schemes contained in successive budgets have contributed to this fall and the fodder and consequent financial crisis experienced in 2013 should alert the Minister to the requirement to fund fully the farm schemes on which so many families depend concluded the ICMSA President Ends 6
