A large proportion of farmers who claimed BPS payments in 2020 are due to receive Financial Discipline Mechanism (FDM) refunds from deductions taken from BPS 2019 payments. Farmers in England are expected to receive in the region of £23m in total.

The NFU lobbied for these monies to be issued and to be paid out earlier than in recent years. The RPA began issuing refunds on 28 April, compared with July last year.
