Outstanding Common Agricultural Policy payments: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

FOI reference: FOI/18/02739  
Date received: 1 October 2018  
Date responded: 5 October 2018
Information requested
You asked for information on how many outstanding CAP payments in 2015/16 and 2016/17 there are in the following areas, and when will they be paid.
Areas being:


Kilmarnock and Irvine valley

Carrick Cumnock and Doon Valley
I enclose a copy of the information you requested.

The following table explains the number of Businesses that are due payment under each scheme year.
Constituency 2015 2016 2017
Carrick Cumnock and Doon Valley         1 5 12
Clydesdale 1 1 7
Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley 1   1
Grand Total 3 6 20

The current processing year figures are subject to fluctuation as applications are investigated and found to be either eligible or ineligible. You’ll be aware that under EU rules, only claims which have been fully checked and validated can be paid. For certain customers, with more complex situations such as claims that have been made on historic land parcels or entitlements or for cross-border businesses, it will take longer to process their payments. Some customers who are subject to inspections that have shown a breach of scheme rules, may also have to rectify these before payments can be made. We will continue to make progress with processing these outstanding claims.
