Farmers can attend one-to-one clinics to make their BPS and Transfer of Entitlements applications online.

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D has announced details of additional one-to-one clinics for farmers who are making their Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) application online.

The closing date for the receipt of all online BPS and transfer of entitlement applications is Wednesday, 15 May.

In recent weeks, the Department has been holding clinics for farmers around the country to assist them in making their BPS and Transfer of Entitlements applications online.

The Minister commented: “online applications bring a range of benefits for farmers and I am committed to ensuring that farmers have all the assistance they require in order to make these applications for essential scheme payments.”

“With this in mind, I have asked officials in my Department to put in place a further set of one-to-one clinics for farmers as the deadline of 15 May approaches.”
