Our unparalleled regional presence has also helped us stay close to primary producers and post-farm gate businesses across the country. 

Technology has changed agriculture and accounting dramatically but one constant over the years is the willingness of RSM accountants to travel to the family farm or business to sit down and discuss the financial affairs with you. We believe that this way, we achieve a greater awareness of your farming business and provide a better service as a result.

With a passion for the industry and its values, our team of advisors to growing small-and-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in agribusiness have strong technical knowledge of the complexities associated with running a farming enterprise.  While recognising the importance of compliance in areas such as tax and employer superannuation obligations, our team also help SME owners focus on the long-term by taking the next step to wealth creation through sound business planning.



From external and internal audits to implementing risk management strategies to tax compliance to valuations and restructures, our corporate services arm will deliver industry-focused solutions drawing on global and local perspectives.
