Entitlements Trading

We offer a comprehensive service in the trading of all types of Basic Payment Scheme Entitlements for farmers in both England and Scotland.

We trade Entitlements on a nationwide basis. If you have surplus Entitlements you want to sell, or if you want to source additional Entitlements to maximise your annual claim, give us a call to discuss your requirements.Entitlements can be traded throughout the year but the Entitlements market is at its busiest in spring, as farmers wishing to claim on additional Entitlements need to have them in place

2020 Trading now Available

C&D Rural are now trading English and Scottish Entitlements for claiming under the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) for 2020 onwards.  

We will be trading three categories of Entitlements in England -Lowland and Disadvantaged (Non SDA), Severely Disadvantaged (SDA) and Moorland as well as three categories in Scotland – Payment Region 1, 2 and 3. Entitlements can be traded throughout the year but parties wishing to claim on additional Entitlements in 2020 must have submitted a transfer request to the Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspections Directorate (SGRPID) by the 2nd April 2020 or to the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) by the 15th May 2020.

Who will want to buy Entitlements

Who will want to sell Entitlements
