Statements to go online

First published in Farming

FARMERS and agents can view their Single Payment Scheme (SPS) 2013 entitlements statements online.

The Rural Payments Agency (RPA) is making them available through SPS Online even if they were paper applications.

Justin Chamberlain, customer director, said more than half of all applications in 2013 were made electronically.

He said: “It is really encouraging to see increasing numbers enjoying a system which offers instant receipts and checks for common errors.

“I would encourage those farmers to register now as being online will leave farm businesses in a good position for Basic Payment Scheme changes being introduced in 2015.”

Users can access SPS Online at online. New users need a PIN from the RPA which is available at or from 0845 603 7777.
