Summary/Abstract: The aim of this article is to determine and present, by the method of text analysis, the most important issues of the Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 which established the rules for direct payments to farmers under support schemes within the framework of the common agricultural policy. Namely, the Regulation was one of the basic laws underlying the new Common Agricultural Policy of the European Union, which had been formulated in accordance with the strategy „The CAP towards 2020“. The Regulation established the rules on general provisions in the field, basic payment scheme, single area payment scheme and related payments, coupled support, small farmers’ scheme, national restructuring programmers for the cotton sector, and other issues. Also, the Regulation authorizes the European Commission in order to supplement or amend certain non-essential elements of the Regulation. In the Republic of Serbia the financing of agriculture is regulated by a law (the Law on subsidies for agriculture and rural development), and relevant bylaws on the basis of which each year paying agency distributes appropriations for different measures, in accordance with the law on the national budget. In the following period, Serbia has to harmonize its legislation with the Regulation and the other European legislation in the field.
