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

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

James was very helpful and extremely professional as well as being most approachable. I’m so pleased I came to ask you for your help and am very grateful for it.

Well it all went through this week due in no small part to your excellent and swift survey thank you

Thank you very much for the report and your sound advice. And to Sarah for organising the survey so quickly. I am so grateful to have the facts to make an informed decision and have gone back to the estate agents to re-negotiate.

Excellent service from Ryan and if we need a valuation again, we will 100% be using him

A huge part of the success of the Managing Agent role is directly related to establishing and maintaining sound and effective procedures and having a trusted and available central contact point for shareholders, that is where you fit in….. Thanks to your (largely) unseen work in the background, the implementation of a brand new managing agency facility for three very different MANCOs and in the teeth of a Global pandemic has been remarkably smooth.

On behalf of ..... Farms I would just like to thank you for all your input in securing planning consent with a detailed set of plans drawn up in a very professional way
