Half of English Basic Payment to be Paid in July
As a response to current cash flow issues, DEFRA has announced today (Friday, 6th May) that it is now using its freedom out the CAP to make a first half payment of this year's Basic Payment in England in July to those who have made eligible applications by 16th May.
The balance of the payment will then be paid from December in the usual payment window.
This approach will then apply in England for the remaining life of the Basic Payment Scheme.
