The 2016 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) was opened by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine this week. All farmers must submit their application on or before 16th May 2016. In a new development, all GLAS participants must submit their BPS through the online facility. The transfer of farm entitlements application form is also available now.
If you wish to receive any farm support payments in 2016 or commenced farming in 2016, you also must declare all farmed land before this deadline.
Contact us if you wish to discuss your BPS application, buy/sell entitlements or need any advice.
