Scottish Government cash flow scheme

The Scottish Government-backed loan scheme aimed at easing cash flow issues in Scottish agriculture opened this week.

Farmers and crofters who’ve not yet received a first instalment and cannot access support from their bank will be able to apply to the Scottish Government for an interest-free cash advance worth of 60 per cent of their CAP claim, up to a maximum of £20,000. A formal letter from the bank declining support will be required to support applications.

Application forms will be available from the Rural Payments and Services website or by calling the RPID customer helpline on 0300 300 2222. The helpline will be open this weekend between 8.30am and 4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday.

RSABI is a Scottish Charity which provides support to farmers and crofters in times of crisis and hardship. Support can be accessed through the RSABI Helpline on 0300 111 4166 or by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . RSABI encourages any farmer or crofter in need of assistance to talk to the RSABI Helpline – don’t suffer in silence.
