Basic Payment Scheme/Greening/Areas of Natural Constraints

BPS Preliminary Checks

Preliminary checks commenced on June 5, 2020. They offer farmers an opportunity to rectify certain non-compliances, with no penalty applied where the non-compliance is fully rectified by that date. Preliminary checks cover overclaims, dualclaims and overlaps only. If you are signed up for text message alerts, a text will issue to advise you that they have a notification on their BPS account.

Read our Preliminary Checks – How To Guide on how to respond.  Also, our Preliminary Checks FAQ document explains preliminary checks in more detail.

All notifications and responses can only be made via the online BPS system.  All responses must be made by midnight on June 19, 2020.
