The person named submitted an application under the 2017 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) on 5 April 2017.

In addition, the person named submitted a 2016 Transfer of Entitlements application to my Department seeking the transfer of entitlements by way of gift. Additional information pertaining to the transfer of these entitlements has been requested from the parties concerned on two occasions. As the additional information has not been received, the 2016 Transfer of Entitlements application has been deemed unsuccessful and the parties concerned have been notified.

As the 2016 scheme year position has now been finalised, the processing of applications for 2017 BPS and ANC are being finalised. Any payments due will issue shortly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
