Our Expertise in the Energy Sector

Renewable energy can be a valuable source of income for your farm. Capturing power from the sun or wind and converting it into electricity creates a resource which you can consume on-site or sell to the national grid. However, due to the costs and long term consequences of investing in renewable energy, it is vital to take tax and legal advice.

Investing in renewable energy must be carefully considered as there are many factors to take into account; planning, contracts, leasing, taxation and succession to name but a few. Your ifac team is here to provide expert advice on investment implications and assist you in determining the right option for you.

I listen to farmers expressing concern about the service they are getting from their accountant. I tell them to join ifac as I am very happy with the service I am getting

Pat Murphy Dairy Farmer

I was of the opinion that I had a good accountant prior to moving to ifac. Ifac’s service goes beyond the traditional tax accountant. Their service matches my plans for the future of my farm with top class tax planning.

Larry Martin Dairy Farmer

Young farmers need expert specialist advice, they need to be with an accountant who knows farming and farm income and transfer taxes. Ifac fits the bill for me and I strongly recommend them to other young farmers.

Colm & Judy Diggins Dairy Farmer

You need an accountant who knows farmers and the business of farming. Ifac is a co-op and they know farming and farm tax, they are experts and I recommend them.
