BPS support scheme launched in Wales
Published October 16th, 2019
Farmers in Wales are being offered interest free Government loans if they don’t receive their Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) 2019 payment when the payment window opens on December 1, 2019.
The BPS Support Scheme application is available for BPS applicants whose claim will not be fully processed by the opening of the BPS payment window and the Welsh government is urging anyone who submitted an application for BPS 2019 via the Single Application Form (SAF) 2019 to consider applying for a support scheme payment.
This is an opt in scheme and farmers need to apply for a support scheme payment by November 29 if they wish to receive a payment in the event their BPS 2019 claim has not been fully processed. There will be no further opportunity to apply after November 29.
The BPS Support Scheme payment value will be a maximum of 90% of the claimant’s estimated 2019 BPS payment and is likely to be made during the week starting December 9, 2019. Interest will not be charged and the loan sum will be automatically deducted from the BPS 2019 payment when it is fully processed.
Farmers can apply for a support scheme payment using their RPW Online account.
