COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2017/2280

of 11 December 2017

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 laying down rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 setting up a network for the collection of accountancy data on the incomes and business operation of agricultural holdings in the European Union

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 of 30 November 2009 setting up a network for the collection of accountancy data on the incomes and business operation of agricultural holdings in the European Union (1), and in particular Article 5a(2), the third and the fourth subparagraphs of Article 8(3) and Article 19(3) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 (2) sets out the number of returning holdings per Member State and per Farm Accountancy Data network (FADN) division. Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 provides that the Member States have to notify the Commission of a plan drawn up for the selection of returning holdings that ensures a representative accounting sample of the field of survey before the beginning of the accounting year to which the plan relates.

(2)

Following the request of Germany to merge the divisions Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg into one division named Schleswig-Holstein/Hamburg and the requests of Greece, Hungary, Romania and Finland to change the number of returning holdings or threshold of economic size due to structural changes in agriculture, it is appropriate to allow those Member States to revise their selection plans and/or threshold of economic size for the accounting year 2018 and to redistribute or adjust the number of returning holdings accordingly.

(3)

Given the growing importance of earlier availability and higher quality of accountancy data, the Commission encourages Member States to make additional organisational efforts enabling upgraded data completeness and enabling farm returns to be submitted earlier than the deadlines laid down in Article 10 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220.

(4)

In order to support earlier availability, completeness and increased quality of accountancy data submitted by Member States, the deadlines for data transmission and the procedure in relation to the payment of the standard fee should be reviewed and linked to the timing of delivery and completeness of the FADN data delivered to the Commission.

(5)

A transitional provision related to the accounting year 2018 budgetary availability should be included in Article 14 of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220.

(6)

Annex VIII to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 sets out the form and layout of the accountancy data contained in the farm returns. For the sake of clarity, Annex VIII should provide for additional information as regards the presentation of those data.

(7)

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(8)

The proposed amendments should apply as from the accounting year 2018.

(9)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee for the Farm Accountancy Data Network,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/220 is amended as follows:

(1)

in Article 3(2), the following subparagraph is added:

‘Germany, Greece, Hungary, Romania and Finland shall revise the respective selection plans they notified for the accounting year 2018. They shall notify the Commission of their respective revised selection plans for that accounting year by 31 March 2018.’;

(2)

Article 14 is replaced by the following:

‘Article 14

Amount of the standard fee

1.   The standard fee referred to in Article 19(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 shall be fixed at EUR 160 per farm return.

2.   If the 80 % threshold referred to in Article 19(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 is not met neither at the level of a FADN division or at the level of the Member State concerned, the reduction referred to in that provision shall be applied only at national level.

3.   Subject to the fulfilment of the obligation to comply with the 80 % threshold as referred to in Article 19(1)(a) of Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009 in respect of a FADN division or a Member State, the standard fee is increased by:

(a)

EUR 5 where the Member State submits the accountancy data referred to in Article 9 of this Regulation not later than 1 month before the relevant deadline referred to in Article 10(3); or

(b)

EUR 7 in the accounting year 2018 and EUR 10 from the accounting year 2019 where the Member State submits the accountancy data referred to in Article 9 of this Regulation not later than 2 months before the relevant deadline referred to in Article 10(3).

4.   To the increase of the standard fee under points (a) and (b) of paragraph 3 may be added EUR 2 for the accounting year 2018 and EUR 5 from the accounting year 2019 where the accountancy data has been verified by the Commission in accordance with point (b) of the first paragraph of Article 13 of this Regulation and is deemed duly completed in accordance with Article 8(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1217/2009, either at the moment of its submission to the Commission, or within 2 months of the date upon which the Commission informed the submitting Member State that the submitted accountancy data is not duly completed.’;

(3)

Annexes I, II and VIII are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the seventh day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from the accounting year 2018.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 11 December 2017.
