Basic Payment Scheme Update
The RPA is currently sending out a leaflet updating BPS claimants on their progress and what happens next. During October, the RPA were working on entitlement and land transfers submitted by RLE1 forms and will confirm with each party once this has been completed. This month the BPS payment rates are due to be announced and anyone who applied for entitlements from the National Reserve or Young Farmer Scheme will know if they have been successful. The RPA are still aiming for the majority of payments to be made by 31st December and will contact anyone who will not receive payment until after the end of January.
