An application under the 2012 Single Farm Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 13th April 2012.

Having secured EU Commission approval, an advance payment of 50% of the Single Farm Payment, which, in the normal course, would be due for payment no earlier than 1 December 2012, is scheduled to be made on 16 October 2012 to applicants cleared on that date for payment. My Department is making every effort to maximise the extent of advance payment, subject to ensuring that the requirements of the Scheme are complied with by individual applicants.
