Entitlements are the basis for payments under the Single Payment Scheme. If you hold an entitlement you can apply for payment under SPS if you meet certain rules.
There are two types of entitlement:
- Normal entitlements, which are activated (claimed) against land; and
- Entitlements with special conditions (special entitlements) which are activated (claimed) against livestock.
To activate means to use your entitlements along with eligible land or livestock to apply for payment to the SPS.
Your latest Entitlements Statement will show the number of entitlements you hold at the time it is produced.
In this section you will find information on all aspects of Entitlements. You will find a list of items in the Entitlements section on the left of this page. Use these links to access specific topics directly.
For more information on Entitlements, see section E of the Single Payment Handbook for England 2013.
