What you will learn

By the end of this event the attendee should:  

    • Understand the peculiarities of accounting for agricultural entities. 
    • Understand the standard for farming; IAS 41 – Agriculture
    • Understand amendments to IAS 16 and IAS 41 on bearer plants.
    • Understand the treatment of government grants pertaining to agricultural activities.
    • Be aware of the taxation of income from agricultural activities. 


Farming is a unique business undertaking with peculiar challenges. Very few types of businesses deal with living produce in the form of crops or livestock (biological assets). The transformation of these biological assets into agricultural produce makes agricultural businesses different.  

How does a farmer value livestock at the end of a trading year? What about crops that are not yet ready for harvesting? Nutrients are taken out of agricultural land year in, year out; does the farmer depreciate it in the books? These simple examples give you an indication of the uniqueness of accounting for farming businesses.
