The person named was approved to GLAS 3 with a contract commencement date of 1stJanuary 2017. Payments have issued for scheme years 2017 – 2018 inclusive.

An issue arose in relation to the commonage parcels following Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) checks which has delayed the processing of GLAS payments for this case.

My Department is currently working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible so that outstanding payments can be processed.

GLAS payments are continuing on a weekly basis as applications pass all validation checks.

I am pleased to confirm that the GLAS Contract for the person named was extended for the 2022 scheme year through the online system 13thDecember 2021.
