This post is now out of date. Please check the latest status updates on the Rural Payments service.
We are releasing new features onto the service this week - thanks for bearing with us if the service is slower than usual while we make these important updates. You will still be able to register, however please note some of the details of your land might not be visible to you - certainly for the first part of this week while we make these updates.
We understand that some customers are having problems with giving permissions to Agents. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. This particular issue has emerged today (3 February); we're looking into it as a matter of urgency and will let you know here when it's fixed.
As we add new features and make improvements to the new Rural Payments service, from time to time it might not be available but we will always try to give you as much notice as possible and will keep you updated as we go.
