There is no record of any appeal in respect of GLAS payments for the person named.

In this case, as part of GLAS 2019 pre-payment checks, the area of the commonage claim will be reviewed to determine the correct baseline for payment under GLAS as the eligible area has been reduced.

GLAS payments are calculated annually for qualifying actions delivered. Prior to payment, administrative checks are made on all GLAS claims including a cross check with Basic Payment Scheme records to validate GLAS area-based claims. If there is a reduction in the area being claimed on BPS, this will be reflected in GLAS payments. GLAS actions must be delivered for the duration of the contract and cannot be moved during these five years.
