TAMS II is a demand-led scheme under which payments valued at €135m have issued to date to over 9,180 farmers.
Approximately 10,000 farmers currently have an approval, where a payment claim has not yet been submitted. This represents a potential outstanding liability of €128m. These figures do not include the Tranche which closed on 5 April 2019 as these approvals have not yet issued. A further announcement on the implementation of this Tranche will be made in due course.
The grant rate applicable for TAMS is 40%, with an additional 20% on top of that for young trained farmers. The current tranche is open to new applications.
