RPA issues important reminder to recipients of CAP funds

Details of all payments made between 16 October 2013 and 15 October 2014 will be published on searchable website

The Rural Payments Agency (RPA) is reminding its customers about changes to European legislation which require the UK to publish details of the amounts paid to people who claim Common Agricultural Policy funding.

The legislation, introduced last year across Europe, means that on 31 May details of all payments made between 16 October 2013 and 15 October 2014 will be published.

The data will be held on a searchable website and will include the names and locations of the recipient, as well as details of the amounts and schemes for which payments have been made.

Those who received less than the equivalent of €1,250 will not be identified.
