The 2020 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) payment window opens today, Tuesday 1st December. Despite extending the deadline for submissions earlier this year, the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) claims to have made good progress with processing applications which are now ready for payment.
BPS payments for England are set in Euros and then converted into sterling. At an exchange rate of €1 = £0.89092 the 2020 BPS payment rates are as follows:
|Entitlement Region||Entitlement Value||Greening Payment Rate|
Farmers can expect to receive a slight increase in their payments this year following the decision that Financial Discipline Mechanism (FDM) reductions will not apply in 2020.
If you have any questions regarding your BPS payment or would like help checking that the payment is correct, please contact the office on 01793 842055.
