Our team of agricultural surveyors provide expert advice to farmers, landowners and rural businesses to maximise their returns. As land managers, our clients are responsible for maintaining and enhancing the countryside, however, this requires time and expense. Our experienced specialists are well placed to advise on enhancing your income with the following grants and subsidies.
Grants & Subsidies
BASIC PAYMENT SCHEME (BPS)
BPS has provided income for agricultural businesses for many years, but this funding is now being withdrawn. Our team will happily assist with on-going BPS claims, as well as directing you to new sources of income.
COUNTRYSIDE STEWARDSHIP SCHEME (CSS)
Over the past decades, stewardship agreements have been offering annual payments for managing land environmentally, as well as capital grant aid. These agreements can prove highly lucrative, but the right advice is essential to ensure land managers get the most out of the scheme. Unlike many advisers, we understand the importance of your business alongside the scheme requirements, ensuring we tailor an agreement to your needs. Our team has a commercial focus and a history of successfully securing thousands of pounds of capital grant aid for farming clients.
AGRICULTURAL TRANSITION SCHEMES
Change is on the horizon for UK agriculture following the departure from the European Union. New funding schemes are rapidly emerging from the UK government to secure rural incomes in return for public benefit. We are constantly in contact with government agencies, ensuring our team can give you the best advice. The schemes under the transition programme include, Sustainable Farming Incentive, Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Nature Recovery.
SLURRY INVESTMENT SCHEME
The livestock industries in England are under pressure due to SSAFO regulations and the Farming Rules for Water, requiring on-farm slurry storage to be compliant for the scale of the business. The costs of these stores are huge and capital grant funding is available; our team are regularly negotiating with the Environment Agency and Natural England to ensure we maximise the grant funding.
