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
  • Rural Regenerations Grants

Your Words, Not Ours

We shall continue to use Symonds & Sampson for any land agency work with our smallholding and appreciate the complete facilities the firm can provide.

Many thanks for providing this helpful information and the informal valuation to our solicitors Ramsdens. I appreciate you doing this so promptly and at such short notice.

Thank you so much for all you have done. Like you said, it was never going to be black & white but we got there in the end.

Your talk and quiz for our members was very interesting and informative and was well received by everyone who attended.

To have your help and wonderful support so spurred us on. The generosity of all your staff has been overwhelming and to pick up today's cheque was the icing on the cake - thank you.
