It is estimated that over 115,000 farmers have already received their payments, although a further 11,000 plus are still awaiting their advance payment. This is due to a range of different issues, including inspection issues. Other issues include dual claims, overclaims, transfers and digitisation.The payments issued so far have been an advance of 70% of BPS payments. It will be down to farmers left waiting for payments, to sort out the range of issues delaying payments.
