Entitlement Trading

McCartneys will be trading English and Welsh Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) entitlements for the 2018 season. Clients will be able to check their entitlements on the Rural Payments online service in England and RPW online service in Wales from January 2018.

 Please check these for spare entitlements to the land area you will be claiming in 2018 as these can be traded. It is now possible to lease as well as sell entitlements.

 In Wales, the transfer window is open and will close on 30th April 2018. All entitlement transfers will have to be completed online in Wales. McCartneys can be appointed as your agent to do the transfer.

 In England, entitlement statements should be available online in early 2018 and the transfer deadline date is 15th May 2018.

 The RLE1 forms cannot be done online until Late February. Vendors will need to add a McCartneys agent to their online account so that we can do the forms for you.

 The exchange rate confirmed for 2017, and what our trading is based on, is €1 = £0.8947.

 The Greening payment is not included in the entitlement value, being an additional payment over and above BPS entitlement values.

 If you are looking to sell or purchase entitlements please contact us. We will add you to our trading register.
