Online systems for payments now open

The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine this week confirmed the opening of online systems for transferring payment entitlements, applying to the National Reserve and Complementary Income Support for Young Farmers.

“This follows on from a similar opening for the Basic Income Support for Sustainability (BISS) and other area-based schemes applications and provides key services to farmers adjusting their farming business and providing for support for generational renewal,” a Department spokesperson said.

This is the first year of the new CAP Strategic Plan and farmers and advisors have been reminded of the following delivery dates: Closing date for transfers of Payment Entitlements, applications to the National Reserve, CISYF and BISS applications is midnight on Monday, May 29th while payments for CISYF and other schemes are expected to commence in December.
