BPS & Rural Grants

Specialists in assisting with applications for a number of rural grants and subsidies.

Since the introduction of the Single Payment Scheme, now the Basic Payment Scheme our professionals have continued to expand their knowledge and expertise on all grants available.

Since the Single Payment Scheme (SPS) was introduced our advisors have dealt with a great many enquiries from clients needing help with applications, registering land, claiming special entitlements and transferring entitlements and land. Following the introduction of the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) in January 2015 the Agricultural team have continued to expand their wealth of practical knowledge on the subject and are on hand to provide advice for farming clients.

If you would like specific advice on business planning, in light of the BPS, please contact the advisers listed.

If you are interested in trading or transferring entitlements please contact Lester Williams in the Sherborne office.

We can advise and assist with:

  • Annual BPS claims including the registration of land, mapping amendments, cross compliance and resolving disputes with the RPA.
  • The sale, purchase and trading of entitlements
  • Countryside Stewardship
    • Mid-tier and higher-tier schemes
    • Wildlife offers
    • Standalone water capital grants
    • Hedgerow and boundary grants
  • Rural Regenerations Grants

Your Words, Not Ours

I wanted to thank you very much for all your guidance and help you have given us in getting the approval for the new dwelling on the farm. It is very good news. Your help and input has been the key factor to us getting planning permission.

We found Symonds and Sampson refreshing to deal with, agents we could actually talk to. They took their time to fully understand the market and we used them across many of our storage locations in Somerset. They were professional and knew their industry as well as the whole valuation process. We would happily use them again and recommend them.

We both really appreciate the work you have put in to get the Agricultural Tie lifted. You deserve a GOLD medal

Thank you for all your hardwork sorting out the BPS and ELS/HLS claims and issues over the past couple of months, much appreciated by the team
