Agriculture and Rural Affairs

Agriculture is a unique industry. It involves the same hard work and commitment as running any other business but is also subject to unique pressures, including weather conditions, disease, pests, the influence of supermarkets on profit margins and changing consumer demands.

To survive and thrive today, farmers and other rural businesses need efficient financial controls and cost and tax-effective operations, as well as being willing to diversify, find new income streams and keep their competitive edge sharp. Putting in place a clear strategy for passing on the farm to a new generation is also crucial.
