The new Rural Payments service is being rolled out in stages so that we can make updates and improvements as we go.
We've been inviting people to register and start telling us about their land in order to get started on their Basic Payment Scheme claim.
If you’ve already registered onto the service, you will notice a couple of things have changed based on user feedback.
We’ve made it easier for you to tell us about your land features
People told us that they found drawing land features onto the service difficult - so we’ve changed it. You can now drop a pin onto the feature instead of drawing it on, as the RPA only needs an indication of where it is.
If you need any help when adding or editing a land use or land feature, please call 03000 200 301. We've also published some new guides to help you tell us about your land.
We’ve recently been making some updates to the service and there is more to come. Will keep you updated here.
Please check the service updates page for information about the service and our helpline hours.
