This basic tool can be used to simply calculate how BPS payment reductions in England, that are due to start in 2021, will impact your farm business. Simply enter your 2019 BPS payment amount and the calculator will display how reductions are likely to look compared to the relative total amount of BPS your business received in 2019. The calculator currently only considers the BPS payment in its current form and does not take into account any implementation of ELM, as well as existing payments schemes, such as countryside stewardship, or the new payment system due to roll out through the agricultural transition period. For more information on ELM, and other government payment schemes that are due to replace the current structure, please see the DEFRA guidance here.
