Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Balancing Payments for the GLAS scheme commence when the Member State has verified that all eligibility conditions have been met. This is a requirement in the relevant EU Payment Regulations and is a long-standing EU audit requirement. GLAS 2017 balancing payments commenced payment week ending 18 May 2018 as per my Department’s commitment at the beginning of the year.

To date, over 98% of eligible GLAS participants have received their balancing payment. A number of cases remain ineligible for payment as the GLAS participant and/or their Advisor need to take action. I would encourage any GLAS applicant with outstanding obligations, such as the submission of a Nutrient Management Plan or finalisation of a Commonage Management Plan to speak to their Advisor and ensure that this work is completed as a priority. Without the submission of all the required information, these applicants will remain ineligible for further GLAS payments.

Please find in the table a further breakdown of GLAS 2017 payments made to date:
