Dear Mr Gadd,
Environmental Information Regulations – Information Request
We refer to your request for information dated 10 December 2020 which we have dealt with under
the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR).
Please accept our apologies for the delay in providing you with a full response.
You have requested details of payments made to a number of businesses under the Basic Payment
Scheme (BPS) from 2014 to 2017.
Details of payments made to businesses in the 2017 BPS scheme year (2018 EU Financial Year)
can be found at [1]http://www.cap-payments.defra.gov.uk/
 
Details of payments for previous years can be downloaded from the UK Government Web Archive at
[2]https://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.....
Note that the years quoted on the menu page are the year the information was archived, and
that the years quoted on the archived pages are EU financial years which are one year ahead of
scheme years. (i.e. to access information relating to the 2016 BPS scheme year, click ‘2019’,
‘Mar 1’, ‘download’ and ‘2017’).
 
Please also note that any payments made in the 2014 scheme year would have been under the old
Single Payment Scheme (SPS) rather than BPS.
 
What you need to do
If you are not happy with the way we have handled your request, you can ask for an internal
review. These requests should be submitted in writing within two months of the date of receipt
of the response to your original request and should be addressed to the Information Rights
Team at the Rural Payments Agency, North Gate House, 21-23 Valpy Street, Reading, RG1 1AF or
alternatively email your request for a review to [3][email address]
 
If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Please note that generally the
Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have first exhausted RPA’s own
complaints procedure. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: [4]Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
 
If you need further information
If you have any questions about this email, you can contact us by email [5][email address].
 
You can find more information on how we handle personal data in our [6]Personal Information
Charter and [7]RPA Privacy notices on [8]GOV.UK
 
Yours sincerely
