Understanding Your Farm Finances

20 March - 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Understand your finances to make informed decisions.

Successful businesses have a number of things in common. One is that they implicitly understand their finances and use financial data to inform decisions, plan future activity, monitor and manage business growth and understand and identify risk.

In this workshop we will be examining:

  • Understanding business accounts
  • The purpose of financial accounts and management accounts
  • The importance of budgeting and forecasting
  • Constructing budgets and cashflow forecasts
  • Monitoring performance and taking action
  • Understanding where your profit comes from
  • Cost accounting and managing diversified businesses.

All from the perspective of farm based businesses.

If you want to better understand your farm’s finances, improve your cashflow, make decisions about where to focus your efforts or where to invest, there will be something in this workshop for you.



This workshop is available to any farmer or land manager in Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Cornwall, or the Isles of Scilly currently in receipt of BPS payments.
