Flood Help

As you may be aware, the Farming Recovery Fund initially opened for applications for flood-affected farmers in Cumbria, Northumberland and parts of Lancashire on 18 December 2015.  Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)  has decided to extend the fund to allow eligible farmers in Lancashire and Yorkshire impacted by Storm Eva, which hit over Christmas and Boxing Day (25 and 26 December) are now able to apply.


The deadline for applications has now been extended from 18 March 2016 to 1 April 2016 to provide further time for affected farmers to apply.  Details of how to apply are available at: Farming recovery fund


Farmers whose land has been flooded and are experiencing extreme hardship are advised to contact the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) on 03000 200 301 as soon as possible and report their circumstances, so that they can access targeted support.


If you require any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us on 01729 823755.



Was your business affected by the recent floods?

A new HMRC helpline will provide fast, practical help and advice on a range of tax problems that taxpayers affected by the recent severe weather may be facing.

HMRC will:

  • Agree instalment arrangements where taxpayers are unable to pay as a result of the floods;
  • Agree a practical approach when individuals and businesses have lost vital records to the floods;
  • Suspend debt collection proceedings for those affected by the floods; and
  • Cancel penalties when the taxpayer has missed statutory deadlines.


The helpline is: 0800 904 7900

If you require any further assistance regarding this matter please do not hesitate to contact us on 01729 823755.
