    Helps if you display your location on your avatar/profile. Different countries have different schemes.

    In England you can get a top-up payment on your SFP of 20% of your overall claim, you can also apply for free entitlements.

    England have additional BPS which can be back dated (I think) it's 3 years.

    Scotland have a number of schemes to support capital investment.

    I nither claim bps nor live in Scotland so just get on with it, but exploit the system if you can.

    just applied for some entitlements after claiming young farmer since 2015. they have kicked up a real fuss and decided my original young farmer certificate isn't valid as my accountant only verified it by bank account not my accounts, didn't have any accounts as was literally a new start up!!!

    its only kicking off as a jobsworth said you cant claim for 2 lots of entitlements its a 1 off thing, i said yes i never applied for entitlements in 2015 as i had my own! (inherited) so 2018 would be my 1st and only claim for entitlements, i must have annoyed the person as they are making it real hard, had to do a new certificate and they've found a fault on that so to do another to rectify that, don't think i will be seeing 2018 payment until after may 19!!!

    do you still get this bol***ks using an agent?

    Get an agent, you won't regret spending the money when you've got the payment in the bank

    Is there a top up on the standard fencing grants of 40% in Northern Ireland for young farmers?
