Registration Information for DEFRA Users

If you are planning to use the DEFRA service, this page explains whether you need to register with the Government Gateway as either an Agent or an Organisation.

Register as an Agent if:

- You are intending to complete more than one IACS application electronically.

- You are intending to complete one IACS application electronically, but you work for an organisation that is not part of the farming business which the application is for.

Register as an Organisation if:

- You are a farmer who is only completing one electronic IACS application.

- You are an employee of a farmer (for example, a farm manager) and you are only completing one electronic IACS application on behalf of that farmer.

If you need further help, contact the DEFRA Help desk by phone on 0845 601 3482 or by email.
