The person named commenced their AEOS contract on 1st September 2010. Payment has issued for the 2010-2014 Scheme years.

Under the EU Regulations governing the Scheme and other area-based payment schemes, a comprehensive administrative check, including cross-checks with the Land Parcel Identification System must take place. As all AEOS 1 participants are receiving their final payments under the scheme,  re-checks on payments made for all scheme years must be completed before final payment can be processed. Officials are working through these files and payment will be made in this case as soon as possible.
