Financing New Farm Business

In recent years banks are requesting more detailed information from farmers and self-employed in support of applications for new/increased borrowing facilities. The information requested is generally along the following lines :
  1. 3 years Accounts.
  2. Letter from Accountant confirming Tax position or Notice of Assessment.
  3. If Long Term Facilities are requested, 3 – 5 Year Annual Cash Flow Projections will be required.
  4. Copy of Planning Permission approval will be required for any new building development.
  5. Fixed Price Contract for work being undertaken or detailed itemised costings for work being done confirmed by agricultural consultant.
  6. If additional Security is required, this will be by way of Legal Charge. The Bank will normally require a Loan to value of Security of not more than 70% i.e. Security valued at €1M will cover Borrowings up to €700K.

If the Security being provided does not contain buildings, it speeds matters up – otherwise planning permission for existing buildings may be sought.

Bank will also require confirmation from clients solicitor – as part of security requirements – that existing Buildings are in compliance with planning requirements and if not, application for planning retention will be required.

The Rea Group will prepare Farm Financial proposals for your bank for new, or restructred borrowings.
