Basic Payment Scheme

How would you feel if your Single Farm Payment incurred a 30% penalty?

We can give you advice and assistance on all aspects of the scheme including:

  • Cross compliance
  • Completion of annual claim forms
  • Transfer/Lease of Entitlements

With changes constantly occurring, keeping up to date is vital to protect your income and avoid penalties.

Our team provides advice and guidance to clients in all aspects of the new Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) as well as completing and managing BPS applications. We offer up to date service on all issues including a brokerage service for transferring Entitlements.

Benefits of using Herbert R Thomas to manage your SPS include access to our detailed knowledge of the scheme; we can also liaise with the Welsh Assembly Government on behalf of clients to resolve disputes.
