30. Transfers - period of notice
You can transfer your entitlements at any time within the period 16 May of the preceding year to 2 April of the first calendar year in which the transferee may claim the transferred entitlements. This gives us at least six weeks' notice to allow us the time to carry out administrative checks prior to completing the transfer. These checks may include a validation check against our field register.
Please note that we have no discretion under European Commission regulations to vary this period of notice.
If you give less than this minimum period, your application will be rejected automatically. Please help us process your application by giving as much advance notice as you can.
