The RPA have begun to remit the 2016 BPS payments on time, with WebbPaton clients reporting receipt of funds in their bank accounts today. Remittance advices are also arriving with the morning post. As part of our service to BPS clients we will be checking that they are correct.
Meanwhile, online transfers of land and/or entitlements prior to the 2017 claims submission period should be available from mid January and mid February respectively. Paper RLE1 forms can be submitted prior to that but are unlikely to be processed by the RPA until after the 15th May 2017 deadline.
WebbPaton are available to trade entitlements between sellers and buyers in anticipation of submitting the transfer when online transfers commence.
