Welcome to UK CAP Payments

On this website you will find details of amounts received by UK beneficiaries under the European Union’s (EU) Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

This information is provided in accordance with EU Regulation No. 1306/2013 and Commission Regulation No. 908/2014, which require the UK and EU Member States to publish details of recipients of CAP subsidy payments on a single national website. Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the CAP (including the above Regulations) continued to apply during the transition period ended 31 December 2020 and will also apply after that date in respect of 2014-20 Rural Development Programmes until their closure. Moreover, the requirement to publish details of agricultural support payments under retained EU regulations was transposed into UK legislation by Statutory Instruments made under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

The details included on this website relate to all CAP subsidy payments made to beneficiaries during the EU financial years 16 October 2018 to 15 October 2019 and 16 October 2019 to 15 October 2020. The total amount received by each beneficiary is shown under three headings: direct aids (e.g. the Basic Payment Scheme), market schemes and rural development measures. These headings can be expanded to show the amounts paid under each CAP scheme or measure.

You can use the payments search page to view amounts received by beneficiaries. By using the different search options, including name, address, value and scheme, you can narrow down the number of results. Alternatively, you can download the full set of data in a spreadsheet format.

As required by the above legislation, the names of beneficiaries who receive less than the equivalent of €1,250 in total subsidy during the year will not be shown on the website. In these cases, details of the amounts paid to these beneficiaries are included, but with their name removed. In 2019 €1,250 was equivalent to £1,116, and due to changed currency exchange rates, for 2020 it is £1,114.

The UK Government remains committed to full transparency in the use of public funds, including the publication of details about all payments made under the CAP.
