BPS rules and information are often clarified and we raise the key issues reported by our members on a regular, timely basis. Please check this page for updates and advice.
These pages highlight our Basic Payment Scheme lobbying, and developments concerning the applications process, greening, mapping, entitlements, payments and penalties, the Young Farmer Scheme and cross compliance. For information about the 2017 claim year, see the right-hand side of this page.
Following on from his September blog, the NFU's senior BPS adviser Richard Wordsworth sets out some further issues you should be aware of at this time of the year, for BPS payments relating to 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
