29. Types of transfer

You can transfer your entitlements with or without land. If you choose to transfer entitlements without land, we will reduce the value of the entitlements by 50 per cent at the point of transfer. The sum deducted will go to provide additional funds for the National Reserve.

If you chose to transfer them with land you must do so with an equivalent number of eligible hectares of the correct region and the land you transfer must be eligible to support a claim under the Basic Payment Scheme.

You cannot lease your entitlements on their own without land. When arranging a lease, the start and end dates of the lease must be the same for both the entitlements and land.
