By 16 November, in addition to claims which the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) cannot pay due to legal reasons such as probate, all but 6 claimants had received a payment. This figure is an increase of 1 compared to the previously reported figure because the agency is completing routine final checks on nil value claims.
The RPA said it would investigate BPS 2015 claims where there is a discrepancy between the claim information and that held on the Rural Payments Service through a planned reconciliation process. This started after the BPS 2016 application window and looked at an initial stock of 13,607 claims for England. The agency continues to review new queries and has identified around 1,200 claims relating to common land. The total value of top up payments due will only be available once these claims have been reviewed.
