Welsh farmers told to respond urgently to SAF queries

The Deputy Minister for Farming and Food said any delays in returning SAF queries could hold up BPS payments

Farmers in Wales who have received Single Application Form queries raised by Welsh Government divisional offices are being urged to respond as quickly as possible.

 

Deputy Minister for Farming and Food, Rebecca Evans, said that she wanted to ensure there was no unnecessary delay to Basic Payment Scheme payments to farmers so they can be paid as early in the payments period as possible.

 

“I am very aware of the importance of cash flow for farmers which is why I want to encourage any farmers who have received any letters or notifications via email or text message from Rural Payments Wales to respond as promptly as possible,” she added.

 

“This year’s SAFs have taken longer to complete compared to previous years because this is the first year of the new Basic Payment Scheme.

 

“Farmers have been required to provide a lot of additional information under the new regulations which has taken time, but farming unions and agents worked tirelessly to help farmers with their forms to help meet the deadline.

 

“Now that the SAFs have been submitted I want to make sure that part payments under the BPS can be made as early in the payment window as possible.”
