McCartneys will be trading English and Welsh Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) entitlements for the 2019 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 2019.
Please check these for spare entitlements to the land area you will be claiming in 2019 as these can be traded. It is now possible to lease as well as sell entitlements.
In Wales, the transfer window is open and the closing date is 30th April 2019. 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 2019 and the transfer deadline date is 15th May 2019. The function to transfer entitlements online will be available from early 2019 in England.
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 2018, and what our trading is based on, is €1 = £0.89281.
In England the Greening payment is not included in the entitlement value, and in Wales the Greening and Redistributive payments are not included in the entitlement value, being additional payments 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.
