8. Cross-border business
The European Commission's regulations governing agricultural support require that all the land farmed in the UK be covered by one Single Application Form.
If you farm land in more than one region of the UK (Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales), your Single Application Form will be made up of two or more forms applicable to each region involved.
The handling administration that will process your application is determined by the region in which most of your farmland is situated. You will receive one payment made up of all the entitlements held from the handling administration.
If you are a cross-border business, you should read our specific guidance written for you on how various aspects of the new CAP will apply to you.
