Incorrect BPS Payments

blue sky fieldAlthough the RPA claim to have now made 33,000 Basic Payment Scheme payments to farmers, it is becoming clear that some farmers have been underpaid.

The underpayments are due to a failure to pay the greening element where all field parcels are in permanent grass OR failing to take account of properly transferred entitlements.

Please check your claim statements very carefully when they are available in the New Year and forward them to us for checking if you are in any doubt or want help getting the matter rectified.
