Basic Payment Scheme Extension To 2021 Planned

Following further delays to Brexit,  the Minister for Environmental, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, has announced plans to extend the current Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) to 2021 - subject to sufficient funding from the next UK Government.  This means that the earliest any transition to a new system of farm support can begin will be 2022.

Around 75% of BPS claimants will receive their payments at the start of the payment window this year.  Those who don’t and have registered for the BPS Loan Support Scheme will receive 90% of the claim value from 9 December.
