The Common Agricultural Policy is the oldest common policy of the European Union and its influence covers a wide range of social life issues, covering the agricultural production itself as well as the fields of rural development, employment, environmental protection and others. The aim of this paper is to review the development of the CAP subsidy policy and its possible scenarios after 2013. For the analysis, a sample of Czech farms was selected (920 farms) in 2004–2011. The first part of this paper describes the development of subsidies in 2004–2011 and their impact on the profitability of enterprises. It includes a prediction of a possible new system of the direct payments for 2014. These calculations are set out in two variants: a) simplified flat rate per hectare; b) combined payment based on the Regulation of the European Parliament and Council Regulation 2011/0286 (EC, 2011b).
