Whole Business Claim Declaration form: Countryside Stewardship

If you are an agreement holder with multiple Countryside Stewardship agreements, use this form to make a whole business claim declaration for 2020.



New requirements mean that as well as submitting a separate claim for each of your agreements, you must also make a whole business claim declaration to cover all of the management agreements registered to your SBI. (Capital only agreements are not covered by this requirement.)

What you need to do

You must fill in and submit your declaration by 15 May 2020. All the details must be correct before we can pay your claims. To do this, on the form you need to:

  • list the agreements registered to your SBI. Please do not include capital only agreements
  • indicate in the appropriate column whether you are submitting each individual claim online or on paper
  • sign and date the declaration
  • return the declaration by email or post it to:

Rural Payments Agency (Countryside Stewardship), PO Box 324, Worksop, S95 1DF

See the main Countryside Stewardship page for more information about the scheme
