Smallholders are being contacted by The Rural Payments Agency to help them start planning for the introduction of the new Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) for farm payments in May 2015 following EU rule changes.

Around 18,000 Single Payment Scheme claimants have less than five hectares and/or five entitlements and need to start to plan for the introduction of BPS.
