Outstanding Agri-Environment Payments

Tue 18 June 2019

DEFRA has announced today that environmental stewardship and countryside stewardship agreement holders who have not as yet received the full payment for the 2015-18 annual revenue claim should receive a Treasury-funded payment in July.

The payment should be for 100% of the estimated claim value recorded by the RPA. Agreement holders who are affected by this should receive a letter from the RPA confirming this position and more detailed information is available on the website.

These payments are effectively bridging payments, with the RPA continuing to process the annual revenue claims. If there is subsequently found to be a difference then appropriate measures will follow.

Once the payment is made in July, a remittance advice should be received, giving a breakdown. This will be welcome news for farmers and landowners who are affected by the ongoing problems; cashflow has been of real concern to many of those claimants.
