Single farm payment application deadline is hours away

Farmers have just hours left to submit their single farm payment forms if they want to avoid penalties.

The deadline for applications is today, (Tuesday, 15 May).

Forms submitted between 15 May and 9 June will incur a 1% penalty per working day and applications received after 9 June will be rejected.

The same deadline applies to producers in Scotland who have chosen to make their applications using the electronic application system.

Farmers are also urged to make sure that they check they get their acknowledgment receipt within the prescribed timeframe (about 10 days).
