star this property answer text <p>Complexity in CAP rules and the interpretation that EU auditors place on regulations is the root cause of many disallowance corrections. Since 2010, steps taken by Defra have allowed the disallowance penalties incurred in England to be steadily managed at around £50m per year. Throughout this period the Government has challenged claims for disallowance through mediation in the EU and since 2010 reduced the amount of disallowance levied by €285m.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department’s Annual Report and Accounts provides provisions of £64.5m for future disallowance related to historical audits. While future disallowance penalties are difficult to predict, the Government is concerned that the new Horizontal Regulation amends the way that penalty rates are calculated, introducing a ratchet effect, which could greatly increase proposed disallowance penalty corrections, even if the same standards of implementation are maintained. The UK Government believes that a proportionate penalty scheme in the Horizontal Regulation is a priority for CAP simplification and the mid-term review of CAP regulations.</p><p> </p>
