The person named commenced their AEOS 2 contract on 1 September 2011 and has been paid for the 2011-2014 scheme years.

Under the EU Regulations governing the Scheme and other area-based payment schemes, a comprehensive administrative check, including cross-checks with the Land Parcel Identification System must take place. These checks have now been completed and it is expected that payment will issue shortly.
