Officers of Mayo IFA and IFAC Accountants met with representatives of the Mayo Motor Tax Office in Castlebar last week to try and get some clarification of the registration of commercial vehicles for agricultural use.
The delegation included Chairman of Mayo IFA Martin Gilvarry, Roy O’Brien of the IFA Regional Executive and Martin Clarke from IFAC Accountants in Balla.
Following discussions agreement was reached on the text covering the registration of such vehicles.
A farmer and herd owner for bovine and/or sheep, you may submit documentary evidence from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine showing your name, address and herd number. The document must be less than 2 years old.
Sheep farmers must submit proof of payment from the Department for a minimum flock size of 20 sheep.
Alternatively proof of payment from the Department under the Basic Payment Scheme, Areas of Natural Constraint, GLAS or Organic Farming Scheme will suffice.
