The Victorian Government is funding a $6 million rebate scheme to help farmers upgrade from an ATV into a brand new UTV.
Victorian farmers may be eligible for a cash rebate of up to $1200 to offset the purchase of a UTV.
That’s a great incentive to make the switch from an ATV to a CFMOTO UTV.
Let’s take a closer look at how the rebate scheme works.
ATV is an abbreviation for all-terrain vehicle. Also known as quad bikes, they usually carry a single person and are steered by using a handle bar.
The CFMOTO CFORCE 400 LE EPS is an example of an ATV. It is designed to carry a single passenger and is steered by using a handle bar (with the assistance of electronic power steering).
UTV is an abbreviation for utility-task vehicle. Also known as side-by-side vehicles, they are steered using a steering wheel, have side-by-side or bench seats and feature a small cargo bed.
The CFMOTO UFORCE 1000 EPS is an example of a UTV. It is steered using a steering wheel (with the assistance of electronic power steering), features a bench seat which can accommodate three riders (one driver and two passengers) and has a cargo bed which can carry 350KG.
The Victorian Government is encouraging farmers to upgrade from their older ATV’s to newer UTV’s.
Their research indicates that riders of newer UTV’s, fitted with the most up to date and advanced safety features, will be safer than riders of older model ATV’s.
Eligible farmers can apply for a rebate up to $1200 (GST exempt) for the purchase of a CFMOTO UTV, like the CFMOTO UFORCE 1000 EPS.
The Victorian Government requires that the vehicle you purchase must be designed for use in agriculture and have a rollover protection system fitted – all of the CFMOTO UTV's meet these criteria.
In order to be able to claim the cash rebate you need to be a primary producer and meet the below criteria.
For the purposes of the rebate scheme a ‘farmer’ is a primary producer, as defined by the Australian Tax Office.
The rebate scheme will end on 30 September 2019 or when funds run out, so you need to act soon.
We have a great range of offers on the range of CFMOTO UTV’s at Shepparton CFMOTO so there is no better time to act than now.
