Applications now open for 2019 Basic Payment Scheme

This week Defra published the BPS scheme rules for 2019 together with the guidance notes and forms – see Scheme rules and guidance.   Given the mapping problems experienced last year, we would recommend you read the following information to find out how to check changes that have been made to your digital maps and what to do if you want to make changes.  Digital maps in the Rural Payments service - check and change mapping updates.  As always, the deadline for BPS applications is 15th May.
