BPS is welcome each year and for a large proportion of UK farmers it represents a significant proportion of profits in the business. My question is who really benefits from the subsidy? As it is withdrawn I think the real pain will be seen more in the merchanting side of agriculture (and I am not saying some individual farmers will not be hit hard as well). They have got used to pricing to what the market will stand. If the £3billion annual subsidy injection is phased out to diddly squat in 4 or 5 years it is surely the case that inputs will become relatively cheaper as the cash will just not be in farmers accounts to pay such high prices for machinery or fungicides or whatever. I suspect it won`t come to that as the new regime will pay something approaching decent money but with some hardcore environmental strings attached. I just hope the new scheme
is practical and makes sense.

Have you looked at the SFI threads on here at all?🤐

Wow has anyone had that ......not read all the thread !
Still waiting here . It will come one day hopefully 🙂🙂
Yes some have had the above email !!

I would say that if you have not had the above email by now you should get paid either this month or very early in Jan all being well.

Personally i think unless the claim has problems ( like being in probate for example ) then if they are not going to pay the claim untill after the end of Dec and well into 2022 they should pay 70%+ as a bridging loan now.

Why would they need too? Haven’t you read all the other threads? Most farmers on here don’t need it!

Good news - been paid here : bad news - it's short by exactly the same as last year - complaint form sent off in December '20, chased up every 60 days - still not had the courtesy of any kind of reply.

:banghead: :banghead:
Similar situation here. Last year I was short by about a third. I sent in the dispute/complaint form whatever it's called in December and heard nothing. I chased it up a few times and the system showed a case open on my application but last time the lady did say it would take a while as "they are now busy with 2021 applications".

1st December this year payment arrived but for only approx 20% of my claim value🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦
I had some fields merged/altered and that seems to be the problem, others locally have had the same, as soon as RPA makes amendments or alterations it all goes to poo.

The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) alongside the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP), has named new farm safety champions and commended the outstanding work on farm safety that has been carried out in the farming community in the last 20 years.

Two of these champions are Malcom Downey, retired principal inspector for the Agri/Food team in HSENI and Harry Sinclair, current chair of the Farm Safety Partnership and former president of the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU).
