The above named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016. All payments owed to the applicant in respect of scheme year 2016 have issued.

Administrative checks must take place on all GLAS claims. All cases must clear validation checks before payment can issue. Department officials are working proactively to complete these checks. Once this case clears the validations the 2017 advance payment will be made. GLAS 2017 advance payments are being made on a weekly basis.
