Sale Plan


Roberton benefits from a Basic Payment Entitlement and the vendors would be willing to transfer (with land), the equivalent number of entitlements for the eligible agricultural land. The Basic Payment for illustrative purposes only on the holding equates to 166 units of region 1 (131.54 Euros), 7.26 units of region 2 (55.76 Euros), 0.18 units of region 3 (47.01 Euros) per eligible hectare. For the avoidance of doubt, these indicative values have been taken from the 2016 IACS submission and will vary due to internal convergence until 2019. Roberton has also benefitted from a greening payment in 2016.

Roberton lies within a Less Favoured Area and any payment by Agricultural Food & Rural Communities – Rural Payments & Inspections Division under the above scheme in relation to the current farming year will be retained by the vendors.
