Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) 2020 Support Scheme


The BPS 2020 Support Scheme is now available to businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As in the previous two years, the Scheme will again pay a loan of up to 90% of the anticipated value of your 2020 claim – payment will be made during week commencing 7 December 2020. You are encouraged to consider applying in case of a long delay in processing your claim.

It is an OPT IN scheme, and you need to apply via your RPW Online account – the application window is open from 1 September until 27 November 2020.

  • For those CARA clients who pay us the annual fee (£100 + VAT) to regularly check for messages on their RPW account – we will automatically apply for the 2020 Support Scheme on your behalf AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.
  • For all other clients, should you wish CARA to apply for you, then please email or telephone us, giving your farm name  and Customer Reference Number (CRN)  – as on your RPW a/c – BEFORE THE CLOSING DATE (27/11/20). A CHARGE of £10 for this service will subsequently be added to your 2021 SAF invoice.
