A large proportion of farmers claiming BPS should receive Financial Discipline Mechanism (FDM) refunds from mid-September. This payment is not connected to any ongoing BPS correction activity, although the level of payment itself is based on the value of the 2016 BPS payment. The monies originate from reductions taken from the 2015 BPS payments.
RPA will communicate the FDM reimbursement payment by sending a remittance advice after the payment has been issued which will show the payment is due to an FDM reimbursement.
