The Rural Payments Agency has warned some farmers that they may get two receipts when they submit their single farm payment application form (SP5).

The agency keeps updating the Frequently Asked Question section on its website.

The latest addition is a warning that farmers who leave their forms at a drop in centre are likely to get two lodgement receipts – one from the drop in centre and a second one when the form arrives at the main office in Newcastle to be scanned.

However it states: “The date on the receipt from the drop in centre will be counted as the lodgement date for your 2007 claim form.”
