Because the farming industry is so unique in its reliance on living produce, farm accounting and farm tax places unique and often complex demands on farmers compared to other businesses. 

 A specialist farm accountant understands these industry intricacies and knows how to maximise management of your farming operation’s finances even in light of farming’s many unpredictable and uncontrollable factors.

In the agriculture industry your time is precious, and you need to spend it managing your farm, not managing your accounts. UHY Haines Norton’s dedicated Farm Accounting team, headed by Director and Rural Accountant Mark Foster, understands both the practical and financial aspects associated with farming accounting and farm taxation. 

We know from personal experience that farming isn’t just a job but a way of life.  We take the time to understand each client’s situation and apply our agriculture accounting expertise to best meet each clients’ rural tax and rural industry accounting needs.

Farm accountants play a crucial role in the agricultural sector, particularly in New Zealand. With the country’s strong reliance on agriculture as a key economic driver, the need for skilled professionals who can effectively manage the financial aspects of farming operations is paramount. 

Farm accountants in New Zealand are responsible for maintaining accurate financial records for farmers. This includes recording all income and expenses related to farming operations, such as the purchase of livestock, feed, and equipment, as well as the sale of agricultural products. By keeping detailed and organized financial records, farm accountants ensure that farmers have a clear understanding of their financial position and can make informed decisions regarding their operations. In addition to record-keeping, farm accountants also prepare and analyze financial statements and reports. These documents provide farmers with a comprehensive overview of their financial performance, including income, expenses, and profitability. By carefully analyzing these statements, farm accountants can identify areas of improvement and help farmers develop strategies to maximize their profitability. Furthermore, farm accountants provide valuable advice on tax planning and compliance. They stay up-to-date with the latest tax regulations with Cropa and ensure that farmers are in compliance with their tax obligations. By offering expert guidance on tax planning strategies, such as deductions and credits available to farmers, accountants help farmers minimize their tax liabilities and optimize their financial position.

To excel in their role, farm accountants in New Zealand require a strong knowledge of accounting principles and practices. They must be well-versed in financial management, budgeting, and cost analysis. Additionally, they need to have a deep understanding of the unique financial challenges and opportunities within the agricultural industry. Familiarity with agricultural industry regulations and requirements is also essential. Farm accountants must stay informed about changes in legislation that may impact farmers’ financial operations. This includes understanding regulations related to environmental sustainability, animal welfare, and food safety, as well as compliance with industry-specific subsidies and grants. Proficiency in accounting software and tools is another crucial skill for farm accountants. They must be able to effectively utilize software programs such as Xero or MYOB to manage financial records, generate reports, and analyze data. By leveraging these tools, farm accountants can streamline their processes and provide farmers with timely and accurate financial information.

Farm accountants play a vital role in helping farmers make informed financial decisions. By providing accurate and up-to-date financial information, accountants enable farmers to assess the financial viability of various strategies, such as investing in new equipment or expanding their operations. You can find out more on the Cropa Facebook Page  This helps farmers mitigate risks and make sound decisions that contribute to the long-term success of their businesses. Moreover, farm accountants ensure compliance with tax and financial regulations. By staying knowledgeable about tax laws and regulations, accountants help farmers avoid penalties and legal issues.
