Are you a Primary Producer?
We are experienced in all aspects of primary producers
Primary producers are the backbone of the regional and rural economy. Recognising the unique economic, environmental and climate issues faced by primary producers, a number of unique tax concessions have evolved that apply only to primary industries.
What is a Primary Producer?
A primary producer is an individual, trust or company carrying on a primary production business and this includes activities such as plant and animal cultivation, fishing and pearling, tree farming and felling. We understand that there is a smorgasbord of legal, financial and accounting issues to deal with, for primary producers.
This includes but is not limited to dealing with employees, suppliers, wholesalers, labelling, distribution, zoning and environment law to name a few. There are also compliance requirements with the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC), the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and industry bodies such as Horticulture Australia (HAL), to ensure that you are dealing with consumers and other parties in an ethical and legal manner.
Farming can be challenging enough, particularly if you do not have the right partner in your business.
Our services include all aspects of tax accounting and planning, pre-30 June reviews, tax cost minimisation strategies, capital gains tax record keeping, BAS and IAS requirements, and cloud bookkeeping services. We will make sure you comply with all statutory requirements at both state and federal levels – it is our job, not yours, to keep up with all the legislation.

Doing accounting for primary producers is much more complex than it is for most small, city businesses.
It calls for industry knowledge and familiarity with thousands of pages of taxation law – much of it changing year-to-year – that governs the tax credits and requirements that are critical to primary producers.
Our accountants have worked with graziers, landowners, various agriculturists and fishers for years. They understand the special blends of costs, depreciation, seasonality, market shifts and commodity price fluctuations that make primary production a challenging AND rewarding venture.
