Saturday, 27 December 2008 - Junior Agriculture Minister Tony Killeen has reminded Clare farmers of the need to lodge payment claims with local Agriculture, Environment & Structures (AES) Offices of its Department on or before Wednesday 31 December 2008.
He said, “The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has become aware that a number of farmers may be experiencing delays in obtaining certificates which must accompany the claim. These documents include tax clearance certificates or concrete quality certificates. Where such a delay occurs, the additional supporting documentation can be lodged with the Department up to close of business on Friday, 9 January 2009.”
“As previously advised, the deadline of 31 December 2008 is maintained, however, for the submission of a valid claim, including all original invoices and receipts,” added Minister Killeen.
