CS Claims - Rural Payments System Delays

Many will be aware that there are significant delays in the creation and submission of annual claims for Countryside Stewardship.

The RPA is encouraging agreement holders to continue to with their claims. They have advised us that:

'We will make sure that those affected are not disadvantaged. We will keep a record that the system performance has affected their ability to claim and they won’t receive any late claim reductions if we receive their claim after 15 May because of this.'

Those with claims yet to submit are advised to note relevant SBI and agreement numbers, and where possible to open a claim on the Rural Payments System, even if they are then able to progress no further.
