PREMIA AND DISADVANTAGED AREA HEADAGE PAYMENTS 1998
Premia and headage are a vital income support for all farmers. However, IFA's
experience in dealing with many of the problems is that a simple mistake can
result in the loss of a significant amount of money. It is essential,
particularly for smaller farmers, that payments are maximised. IFA's 1998
Direct Payments Planner is of enormous help in this regard. The main schemes
are outlined, the rates of payment, application dates and the most common
mistakes that farmers make when filling out forms.
