Tax-efficient approaches to rewarding farm labour can help retain workers, says Declan McEvoy, head of tax with ifac.

Mr McEvoy is one of the key speakers at a seminar entitled ‘Farming Through an Agri Evolution’ from 7,30pm this Thursday in the Oriel House Hotel, Ballincollig, Co Cork, hosted by ifac and Bank of Ireland.

Agriculture Minister Michael Creed will speak on implications for Ireland of CAP and Brexit. The event is chaired by Alan Jagoe, chair of Agri Aware.

John Fitzgerald, agri manager, Bank of Ireland, will discuss plans to fund sustainable agriculture.

He said: “This event will provide farmers with the information needed to keep pace with changes that are happening.”

The event will also feature a panel discussion with Páidí Kelly from Teagasc, John Kingston dairy farmer from Ballygarvan, Co Cork, and Nollaig Heffernan of outsourcing firm Heffernan Consultancy, discussing how farmers can effectively source and manage labour.

Brian Denn, partner in ifac’s Blarney office, said: “We are providing financial advice to farming families for over 40 years. The purpose of this seminar is to look at issues facing farmers over the coming months and offer solutions or help where possible, notably for farm labour. Topics will be diverse and relevant.”
