Must ap­ply on­line in BPS this year

Irish Examiner - Farming - - FARM FINANCE -

The on­line ap­pli­ca­tion sys­tem for ap­pli­ca­tions for the 2018 Ba­sic Pay­ment and Green­ing Schemes opened yes­ter­day. Farm­ers will shortly re­ceive a BPS in­for­ma­tion pack con­tain­ing terms and con­di­tions and land de­tails.

EU reg­u­la­tions stip­u­late that all ap­pli­ca­tions must be sub­mit­ted on­line this year; hence this week’s early open­ing of the on­line fa­cil­ity, a month ear­lier than in 2017, to pro­vide more time for farm­ers to fa­mil­iarise them­selves with the on­line ap­pli­ca­tion process.

The clos­ing date for BPS ap­pli­ca­tions is Tues­day, May 15.
