BPS 2017

Posted by on Mar 23, 2017 in Farming | Comments Off on BPS 2017

It’s that time of year again and BPS applications are now up and running. The scheme is primarily online and paper forms will only be sent to individuals who completed a paper form in 2016 and did not use an agent.

Whilst we are now three years into the current scheme, there are still ‘wrinkles’ and we are well placed to help you complete a successful application.  If you do wish us to help complete your forms this year, we would be grateful if you could let us know and provide the information we will need:

A copy of the 2016 claim

2016 claim statement

2017 cropping details

Any changes to field mapping

There may be errors on the 2016 payments, including unprocessed RLE1 forms, which we will need to check before making this year’s claim. The RPA have a continual program of re-mapping and the areas and boundaries will need to be checked before the 2017 application is made.

We would be happy to pop and see you to run through all the information for 2017 and discuss any outstanding problems that you have.

Please call Rachel in the office to make an appointment on 01376 328297.
