New service gives instant information without the internet

Make sure you don’t miss out on RPW payments

A NEW FUW service takes the worry out of Rural Payments Wales, using one simple but complete service which manages online accounts, giving members without the internet or those with unreliable connection instant information and complete peace of mind knowing that all their paperwork has been checked by trained staff with additional policy support.

The new service will be monitored by your county office, and new information will be sent to you directly as the farmer.

Every farmer will be contacted using three ways:

• Verbally by home telephone or mobile number
• By text message or email
• By letter if option a or b is not available

You will continue to receive either an email or a text message from RPW Online, as well as the county office contact.

Why sign up to the FUW service?
RPW is going fully digital and will increase the use of broadcast messages about important information. This can be a big problem for farmers, due to lack of reliable broadband and because many farmers do not use email. This could mean farmers missing important updates to their Single Farm Payments, with potential penalties and issues with their claims which may cost farmers thousands of pounds. The

FUW will make sure you never miss any important messages or updates.

A trial period for members in Carmarthen county from May ‐September.

How much?
£150 +VAT for a trial period, then
£195 +VAT thereafter.

Members from other counties interested in this service should contact their local office.

VAT invoices for Full Membership have been issued since April 1 2019. There will be two lines on the invoice: Union Membership (exempt from VAT) and Union Services (20% VAT).

This payment will be really hard on the finances of FUW, but Full Members who are reg istered for VAT can really help their Union by entirely covering this charg e at no cost to them. In the next few weeks, aVAT‐only invoice will be issued to current Full Members who have held membership since September 1 2017. The amount is payable by cheque and must clearly reference your membership number. The entire value of the VAT‐only invoice will then be reclaimed as input VAT throug h business VAT returns.
