Don’t miss Friday’s deadline for Single Application Form submission

Hardworking farmers are reminded that the deadline for Single Application Form submissions expires this Friday (May 15th).

Malcolm Taylor, Bell Ingram’s Head of Land Management, said: “With all the good weather and the potato farmers getting on well with work, it’s worth remembering that the Scottish Government has not extended the deadline for the submission of Single Application Forms

“The deadline is midnight on the 15th of May and any late applications will attract a late submission penalty.

“There is always a late rush with the fear that the online system will be overloaded resulting in delays.”

The Single Application Form (SAF) is one of the most important pieces of work to be undertaken each year and requires a real attention to detail. It is a wide-ranging piece of work encompassing a number of different schemes at the same time - Basic Payment Scheme, Less Favoured Area Scheme and Agi-Environment Climate Scheme.

Bell Ingram are on hand to give advice or help as necessary with Single Application Form submissions. Contact Malcolm Taylor on 07715 609325 or email
