THE application window for Single Application Forms (SAF) opened on Monday March 4 and the FUW is reminding its members that county staff are here to help and ready to take the stress of filling the form away from you. The FUW provides this free service exclusively to all paid‐up members as part of their membership package, which has proved invaluable for thousands of members over the years ‐ saving them time and a paperwork‐headache.
FUW managing director Alan Davies said: “Our staff are not only well trained but very well practised in dealing with the complex application process. The SAF completion process is probably the single most important form completion exercise being carried out by Welsh farmers since 2004, and the financial repercussions of errors on the forms are severe. I encourage our members and first time form fillers to contact their local office as soon as possible to book an appointment if they need help in filling out the form,” added Alan Davies.
