RPA pays 91 per cent of BPS claims in December  

More than 78,000 farmers (91 per cent) of farmers in England have received their Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) payments.

Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom, who was due to speak at the Oxford Farming Conference today (Wednesday, January 4) said:
“I know how important these payments are to farmers and I am pleased that the RPA has surpassed its target of making 90 per cent of payments by the end of December. This is good progress but both Mark Grimshaw and I are clear that the agency will remain fully focussed on processing claims as quickly as possible until everyone is paid.”
RPA chief executive Mark Grimshaw said: “We understand how important BPS payments are to farmers and that’s why we’ve worked hard to get money into bank accounts in the first month of the payment window, injecting just over £1.4 billion into the farming and wider rural economy.
“This month we will communicate directly with those farmers who will be paid from January onwards to help them plan.”
BPS payments are made direct to bank accounts so farmers should make sure RPA has the most up-to-date account details. Once a payment has been made a remittance advice is sent in the post, confirming the amount paid.
More information on BPS 2016, including scheme rules and details of how payments are calculated, is available at www.gov.uk/rpa/bps2016&source=gmail&ust=1483607589009000&usg=AFQjCNHR6yLFc2HRefd0yyZCVU5YA4zCDA">www.GOV.UK/rpa/bps2016.
