What is farm accounting?
Farm accounting differs from conventional accounting due to a number of factors. The timing of recording revenue is not just specific to the financial year-end of the business but also the seasonal impact on growing crops. Valuing livestock and deadstock requires more understanding of the industry and rules surrounding cost of production and deemed cost. You will also find more detailed financial statements that will show separate enterprises for the business income streams and even gross margin calculations which assist better decision making.
