The RPA has produced a useful checklist of the things you need to do when completing your BPS Application this year.
As well as ensuring your bank details are accurate, the checklist also prompts you to ensure you have given correct permissions to others to act for you if you want them to.
It also reminds you to sign your completed form and to include any supporting documents with your BP5 form.
You can download this informal guidance as a pdf and if you have queries or need help to fill in your form, you can also call the Rural Payments helpline on 03000 200 301.
