Having examined records held by my Department, I can confirm that a debt arising under a separate scheme was incurred by the person named.  This debt was netted against the advance payment under the 2020 Areas of Natural Constraint Scheme which recently issued to the person named, in accordance with the debt recovery procedures in place.

Outstanding debt amounts remaining may be collected by an instalment schedule upon agreement between my Department and the individual.  A member of staff of my Department will make contact with the named individual with regards to agreeing such a schedule.
