THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 of 19 January 2009 establishing common rules for direct support schemes for farmers under the common agricultural policy and establishing certain support schemes for farmers, amending Regulations (EC) No 1290/2005, (EC) No 247/2006, (EC) No 378/2007 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (1), and in particular Articles 136a(3) and 140a thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1698/2005 (2), and in particular Article 58(7) thereof,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 establishing rules for direct payment to farmers under support schemes within the framework of the common agricultural policy and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 637/2008 and Council Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 (3), and in particular Articles 6(3), 7(3) and 20(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 103n of Council Regulation (EC) No 1234/2007 (4), Spain, Luxembourg, Malta and the United Kingdom have notified by 1 August 2013 their intention to definitively transfer part or all of the amount available for the support programmes for the wine sector referred to in Annex Xb to that Regulation in order to increase their national ceilings for direct payments for the claim year 2014 and onwards. Accordingly, Annex VIII to Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 has been amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 929/2013 (5). Those definitive transfers also need to be reflected in Annexes II and III to Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013.

(2)

In accordance with Article 136a(1) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 and Article 14(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013, France, Latvia and the United Kingdom notified the Commission by 31 December 2013 of their decision to transfer a certain percentage of their annual national ceilings for calendar years 2014 to 2019 to rural development programming financed under the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) as specified under Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013. In accordance with Article 136a(2) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 and Article 14(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013, Croatia, Malta, Poland and Slovakia notified the Commission by 31 December 2013 of their decision to transfer to direct payments a certain percentage of the amount allocated to support for measures under rural development programming financed under the EAFRD in the period of 2015 to 2020 as specified in Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013. Annexes VIII and VIIIc to Regulation (EC) No 73/2009, Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 and Annexes II and III to Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(3)

In accordance with Article 57a(9) of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009, Croatia has notified the Commission by 31 January 2014 of the area of land which has been demined and returned to use for agricultural activities in 2013. That notification also included the corresponding budgetary envelope for the claim year 2014 and onwards. In addition, in accordance with that Article, Croatia has notified the area of land which has been demined and declared by farmers in the aid applications submitted in respect of the claim year 2013 and returned to use for agricultural activities between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2012. Annex VIII to Regulation (EC) No 73/2009 has been therefore amended by Implementing Regulation (EU) No 929/2013. On the basis of the schedule of increments referred to in Article 17 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013, Annexes II, III and VI to that Regulation should therefore be amended accordingly.

(4)

The amount for financial year 2014 resulting from voluntary adjustment of direct payments in calendar year 2013 in the United Kingdom pursuant to Article 10b of Regulation (EC) No 73/2009, the amounts resulting from the application of Articles 136 and 136b of that Regulation for financial years 2014 and 2015, as well as the amounts resulting from the application of Article 66(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 should be added to the annual breakdown of Union support to rural development. Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(5)

Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 only applies as of 1 January 2015. The amendments to that Regulation should therefore only apply from the same date,
