This Circular extends the submission date of the 2019 Rare Breed declaration form & record sheet along with the required documentation from the 31st May 2020 to the 31st July 2020 in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Any farmer that is getting paid in GLAS for keeping rare breeds must ensure that their paperwork for 2019 is submitted before the 31st of July 2020. This is an extension to the original submission date and it won’t be extended again.
If you don’t have your paperwork submitted by this date you will be rejected from this action in GLAS plan and all money that was received by the farmer under this measure will be recouped in full.
This situation can get even worse if this action was the action that was used to gain a farmer entry into the scheme then the farmer will also be rejected out of the GLAS scheme. This will result in a total clawback of all money received in the GLAS scheme.
