Growers

Commercial growers need advisors who understand and can help plan to manage the cycles and seasonality they face each and every year. That's not something most accountants ever have to grapple with, let alone ever become expert at. But we have.

Our Rural Specialists understand the pressures that can come to bear on growers, and the systems and process that need to be in place to ensure efficient cash flows and performance throughout the annual cycle. We know what we're talking about because we've been doing exactly that for commercial growers for some 90 plus years now... You could say we know our onions.

Here are some of the ways we help growers grow their own business:

Cash Flow And Budgets

Our seasoned Rural Specialists understand the commercial growing sector and have a range of tools and processes that will help take the guesswork and unwanted surprises out of future cycles and seasons.

Structure Planning

Depending on seasonal market pricing for your products and growing costs, we know you will get variable financial results. And of course there's always the chance of freak weather or other extraordinary events that need to be built into your contingency planning. Our team will work with you and your bank around capital repayments, cost savings and restructuring to even out the highs and the lows.

BenchMarking And Reporting

We know that growers must perform and, just like any other commercial business, that financial performance is paramount. Our management reporting and benchmarking services support your decision making, and can be used to help gain the buy in and support of other stakeholders. 

Dairy Farmers

While the basics are pretty much the same as they've always been - money in milk out - everyone knows the dairying landscape's changed a lot over the last 20 years. Our Rural Specialists have helped dairying families run and grow their farming operations in ways that allow them to best manage the capital and variable feed costs, and the uncertainties around pay-out projections. 

We've also developed a number of tools and services designed specifically for owners and operators of dairying operations, such as:
