BPS 2016 – Accountable people, details no longer needed.

It has recently been announced by the RPA that details of the accountable people i.e. people that are associated with a business were required prior to releasing a 2016 payment however, it has been announced today that this is no longer a payment limiting factor for the 2016 scheme.

Carys Studley of Rostons comments “as a result of this, the functionality has not therefore been made available as yet on the Rural Payments service”.

If you have any concerns over what defines an accountable person or your requirements as a claimant then please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team at Rostons on 01829 773000.
