Agriculture Scheme Payments
An application under the 2015 Basic Payment/Areas of Natural Constraint was received from the person named on 24 April 2015. Processing of this application has been finalised with payments issuing to the nominated bank account of the person named on 8 December and 22 September 2015, respectively.
The person named submitted an application for the 2014 Beef Data Programme on 24 March 2014. Under the Terms and Conditions of the Scheme participants were required to complete various surveys by 30 April 2015 for animals born between 1 January and 31 October 2014 and for animals born between 1 November and 31 December 2014 (before those animals were six months old). All of the calves registered in this herd in 2014 were born before June 2014. As the required data were not received until 22 July 2015 the person named is not eligible for payment.
The person named sought a review of the decision on 27 October 2015 but the original decision was upheld. The person named was advised of his right to submit an appeal to the Agriculture Appeals Office.
