DEFRA have today announced that the deadline for BPS applications and Countryside Stewardship annual revenue claims has been extended to 15th June 2020 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We recommend you still submit your claims and applications as soon as possible to ensure prompt payment when the payment window opens.
Note there are no changes to the deadline for new Countryside Stewardship applications, which still stands as 1st May for Higher Tier and 31st July for Mid Tier. For Mid Tier, the deadline to request a pack, or request a endorsement visit from a CFSO is 31 May.
If you need any assistance preparing an application of a claim, please get in touch with Sam on 07777 696080. If we normally complete this work for you and haven't been in touch yet, we will be in contact by the end of this week.
