Farm Business Tenancy Agreements 2016

Since the introduction of the original Farm Business Tenancy Agreement (FBTA) suite, there have been a number of updates with the most recent in 2012, 2014 and 2016.

The 2014 and 2016 updates were primarily to take account of the introduction of the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) in place of the Single Payment Scheme (SPS), and the associated changes to related environmental schemes, as well as other changes such as the abolition of milk quotas and the availability of the new model clauses as an alternative set of provisions concerning repairs and insurance.
