Following further updates  the online system for BPS registrations is back up and running. The RPA are drip feeding invitations out to farmers through agents, the NFU, the TFA and the CLA to prevent over subscription and the system crashing (in a similar fashion to the tax disc launch!).

All farmers wishing to claim single farm payment, sell entitlements, apply for grants or claim environmental stewardship payments must be registered on the new scheme. The registration process is very simple and can take 10 – 20 mins depending on whether you know your security information!

We are helping new and existing clients through this process before we look to complete the claims in March/April. As usual the deadline for claim submissions is 15th May but with an all new system, the sooner the registration process is completed the better.

If you have registered and would like Carver Knowles to assist you to complete the 2015 claim and mapping requirements feel free to add the firm in the ‘Give people permission’ section. You can add everyone in the office or a particular contact you are familiar with.

To make this process as smooth as possible we are offering series of ‘drop-in’ sessions throughout February and March to get everyone registered. Call us now to book your place 01684 853400.
