Direct Credit Payments
The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine now issues all EU funded scheme payments to farmers by Direct Credit. Under this payment method money is electronically forwarded directly to the farmer's nominated bank account or credit union account. At the same time a remittance advice issues by post to the farmer with confirmation of the payment and details of the transaction.
Further information on this payment method and the relevant authorisation forms may be obtained from Direct Credit Section, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Farnham Street, Cavan (Tel: 049 4368283) or directly from the Department's website at this link - Direct Credit Payment - Scheme Payments
