Afforestation Grant Scheme (AGS) Buyout

Afforestation Grant Scheme (AGS)

The AGS was a funding programme designed to help establish new forest in New Zealand, being replaced by the 1BT fund in 2018.

There is currently an opportunity to buy out of the fund, and enter the forest land into the ETS.  The key reasons to do this are -  the current price of NZUs, and the potential to claim NZUs back to 2018.  There are a number of factors to consider, but we can check your contract, whether your forest land would qualify, the numbers ($) and advise if this would be a good option for you.  Contact us now to discuss further and avoid missing out on this opportunity.
