The Integrated Administration and Control System: guidance

These notes tell you about the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) 2008.

4. Deadline for applications

Your SGRPID area office must receive your SAF and all supporting documentation no later than 15 May 2008.

Late applications

We can accept your SAF up to 25 calendar days after the closing date of 15 May 2008. We cannot accept your SAF if we receive it more than 25 calendar days late (that is after 9 June 2008). This means you will be unable to activate any SFPS entitlements you have allocated to you for 2008 and we will not be able to pay you under any scheme which requires you to submit a SAF.

Except in cases of force majeure or exceptional circumstances, we will reduce your payments for all schemes covered by the SAF by 1% for each working day your SAF is late during the 25 calendar day period, after the 15 May deadline.

We cannot accept LMO or LMCMS applications we receive after 15 May 2008.

Acknowledging the SAF

When we receive your SAF, we will record it and send you an acknowledgement - normally within 10 working days. If you delay submitting your SAF until close to the deadline our acknowledgement may take longer. It will confirm the total areas you have claimed or declared and if you have claimed LFASS, PCP, ECS and NAS. It will also confirm the currency you have opted to be paid in. It is your responsibility to check the information in the acknowledgement letter and tell us of any problems you identify. If we dispute receiving your SAF, you must be able to produce our official acknowledgement to show that we received it before the closing date. If you do not receive an acknowledgement, please contact your SGRPID area office in good time so that, if necessary, you can deliver another SAF before the closing date. We recommend, if you are posting your SAF to us that you send it by recorded delivery.
