CAP payments

Payment timetable published.

Clarity and certainty over when farmers and crofters can expect to receive their 2018 Common Agricultural Policy payments has been published.

Under the plans, Pillar 1 payments will commence in March and will largely be completed by the end of June. Pillar 2 payments will commence in April with the majority paid by the end of October.

Publishing the payment schedule, Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing said:

“As we approach the commencement of the New Year, I want to provide farmers, crofters and other rural businesses with as much clarity and certainty as possible.

“I am therefore confirming that we intend to keep to the proposed CAP payment timetable published in our stabilisation plan, which outlines when farmers and crofters can expect to receive their CAP entitlements.

“By doing this, we are offering clarity and certainty over when payments will be made, demonstrating stability in our payment system, while enabling farmers and crofters the opportunity to plan ahead accordingly.”
