Basic Payment and Rural Grant Schemes

Stags Professional Services team has an excellent working knowledge of rural grant schemes and can help landowners through their complexities

Having developed an excellent working knowledge of the rural grant system, particularly relating to the Rural Payments Agency, Stags Professional Services team is well-equipped to offer informed advice on the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and rural grant schemes in Devon, Somerset, Cornwall and Dorset.
