BPS Payment Update

As the 1 December 2015 approaches the RPA have announced that 30,000 claimants will receive their payments on the 1st day of the payment window.  The RPA state that they are on target to pay more than half of 88,000 claimants by the end of December 2015 and almost all by the end of January 2016.

Any claimants unlikely to be paid by the end of January 2016 will be written to by the RPA.  This is likely to include complex claims, such as Common Land claimants.

Additionally Natural England have announced that 79% of Environmental Stewardship payments have now been made, with all payments expected before Christmas.
