It’s that time of year again when the Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) starts thinking about Single Application Forms (SAF). The application window opens on 1st March and the FUW is reminding its members that county staff are here to help and ready to take the stress of filling the form away.
The FUW provides this service exclusively to all paid-up members as part of their membership package, which has proved invaluable for thousands of members over the years - saving them time and a paperwork-headache.
The SAF completion process is probably the single most important form completion exercise being carried out by Welsh farmers since 2004, and the financial repercussions of errors on the forms are severe. FUW staff are not only well trained but very well practised in dealing with the complex application process.
Since the Welsh Government mandated that all applications should be done online, the FUW has focused on providing the best possible service to its members.
The FUW is encouraging its members and first time form fillers to contact their local office as soon as possible to book an appointment if they need help in filling out the form.
