Changes to the payment split for multi-year grants
You’ll now get 75% of your annual grant as an advance payment. You’ll get the remaining 25% as a final payment (subject to any penalties or reductions). The change is effective immediately and includes your 2017 agreement payments.
You don’t need to do anything, Natural England will adjust your payments for you. There are no changes to how and when you make a claim.
Natural England will write to you if you have an existing Mid Tier or Higher Tier agreement with 1 January 2016 or 1 January 2017 start date to let you know about the new manuals.
