What you will learn

By attending this webinar you will gain the following competencies:

  • Understand the unique aspects of accounting for agricultural operations.
  • Apply the financial reporting standard for farming, IAS 41 – Agriculture.
  • Train your staff on accurately measuring, recognizing, and disclosing agricultural assets in financial statements.
  • Evaluate the impact of agricultural accounting on IFRS for SMEs.
  • Calculate deferred tax for agricultural activities with precision.



Accounting for farming operations can be unique and challenging due to the biological nature of the assets (livestock and plants) and other characteristics of this type of business.

Two questions accountants frequently grapple with:

  1. How can a farming operation value biological assets (both mature and still growing)?
  2. Do you depreciate farmland due to the loss of nutrients?

In this session, you will acquire valuable knowledge on the best practices and essential factors involved in accounting for farming operations as well as some deferred taxation implications.
