Rural Accounting & Advice

Whitson Dawson and its ancestral firms have been working with primary producers for the last 130 years.

We take pride and deliver in the specialist advice that primary producers require.  Primary production businesses are different from other small and medium businesses and your accountant needs to have experience in this area to provide the right advice.  It’s often more of a way of life than a business that we are dealing with.

Our firm specialises in the different tax legislation that the sugar and cattle industries are subject to.  We also specialise in the particulars of the industry that are unique – for instance, passing down the farm or property to the next generation, purchasing or selling an agricultural property and annual tax planning advice.  Each example here is an intricate transaction that affects the whole family or business unit.

Every primary production business is different – different ownership, different assets, different plant and equipment and different management/farming processes.  Due to our large primary production client base we are confident we have the depth of experience to tailor our service to each individual client.
