The person named was approved into the GLAS 1 scheme with a contract commencement date of 1 October 2015 and has received payment for scheme years 2015 - 2018.

The 2019 advance payment has not been made in this case as the application did not pass the GLAS pre-payment validations due to a validity issue with a claim for the Planting a Grove of Native Trees action.

A GLAS official has contacted the applicant directly to advise what they need to do to resolve this issue. Once this issue is resolved and the application clears all validations, the 2019 Advance payment will be processed.
