WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

By the end of this event the attendee should:

    • Understand accounting standards applicable to accounting for agricultural activity;
    • Understand important definitions that are unique to agricultural accounting; 
    • Understand how to measure and recognise biological assets;
    • Be aware of the taxation effects from farming; and
    • Understand the Diesel Refund System.

DESCRIPTION

Farming is quite different from other types of businesses because it involves the transformation of  biological assets into agricultural produce (the harvested product). 

With this peculiarity in mind, it also follows that accounting for an agricultural business will be different from accounting for other business undertakings.

The following questions will make this point clearer:

  1. How does a farmer value livestock at the end of a trading year? 
  2. How are crops that are not yet ready for harvest valued? 
  3. What about the nutrients that are taken out of agricultural land year in, year out; does the farmer depreciate the land in the books? 

Join us for this webinar as we discuss how to account for agricultural entities and their taxation effects.
