Basic Payment Scheme


After our successful seminar at Melton Mowbray Market on 2nd March 2017, held jointly with Duncan & Toplis and The Andersons Centre, it seems appropriate to give a brief overview of some of the points raised.

• The system became live on 1st March 2017 

• The requirement for National Insurance Numbers in order to identify accountable people for your business has been dropped

• Ensure your land use and land cover records are identical

• There will still be a paper form in 2017, for those who submitted a paper form in 2016

• However, online forms are recommended as corrections can easily be made

• Take very good care of your 2015 maps as no further whole farm maps will be issued

• Deadline is 15th May 2017
