CAP Payments Timetable

As of 10 January, some 18,418 farmers and crofters had received their BPS and Greening 2015 payments. There was one case outstanding, which SGRPID aimed to process by the end of January.
 
As of 10 January, some 17,840 farmers and crofters had received their BPS and Greening 2016 payments, with the three remaining payments currently being processed.
 
Under the National BPS loan scheme for 2017, payments totalling £311.3m have been paid to 13,295 farmers and crofters. On 24 January, the Scottish Government announced that the National BPS loan scheme would close on 9 February.

In what has been a very challenging year for many farmers and crofters, the £311 million already injected in to the rural economy through the current loan payment scheme will have been invaluable and accounts for more than 75 percent of the expected BPS and Greening pot. Many of the 4,500 who have declined the loan or not yet opted in are likely to be smaller farmers, but it may be appropriate for them to reconsider their decision.

The winter weather, and the difficulties many have experienced in making and sourcing fodder and bedding, means that upland and hill farmers and crofters in particular will be keen to see Scottish Government sticking to its stated timetable for delivering Less Favoured Areas support and coupled payments for beef calves and hill ewe hoggs in April and May.  For those farming in Scotland’s LFA, these payments are often more important financially to the unit than BPS and Greening and the schedule for payment is still months away.
