For a lot of farmers, the Celtic Tiger passed them by. However, the last few years have seen strong milk and beef prices. While feed costs are still high, the recent good summers have been kind to many farmers in the sector, and they are now experiencing better times than most sectors. The abolition of quotas in 2016 will create a period of uncertainty for the industry, but also an opportunity to expand into more profitable areas.
At Connors and Co., we have a long history of dealing with farmers and their accounting, tax and business advice needs. Coming from a local farming background himself, our managing partner Shane Connors is very aware of the key issues facing the sector.
In addition to the annual end accounting and tax filing needs, we provide assistance in the following areas:
- Bank and other finance applications, including grant applications
- Business plans
- Cost reduction initiatives
- Capital investment appraisals including land and buildings
- Performance benchmarking to piers
- Succession planning
