Progressive reductions: calculate how BPS and delinked payments will reduce
Payments from the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) in England are reducing each year from 2021 until the end of the 2023 scheme year.
Delinked payments will replace BPS payments in England in 2024 and will reduce each year until these payments finish.
These reductions to BPS and delinked payments are known as progressive reductions.

To receive delinked payments, you must have claimed, and been eligible for, BPS 2023 in England (except in some inheritance cases).
Use the delinked payments calculator to get an estimate of how progressive reductions could affect your delinked payment in 2024. This estimate is based on the progressive reduction figures proposed in our Agricultural Transition Plan, published in 2020.Start delinked payment calculation
