Farming & Agribusiness

Abbotts have maintained a close link with the farming community, with clients located in both the Great Southern and the Central Wheatbelt areas of Western Australia, and as far afield as the Atherton Tablelands in Queensland.

Bradley Abbott has travelled on a regular basis to the Great Southern region since the 1970’s to service the financial needs of our farming community.

On a personal basis, two of the partners at Abbotts trace their childhoods back to regional Western Australia. Bradley Abbott was born in Katanning, where his father worked for many years with Elders Pastoral as a stock auctioneer. Chris Higham was born and raised on the family farm in Narrogin, before his family moved to Perth where his father established an aviation business which serviced regional Western Australia.

The professional team at Abbotts have substantial technical skill and experience in managing the financial and taxation affairs of the farming community.

We can share our knowledge and expertise to your business through the provision of services such as:

In what historian Geoffrey Blainey famously described as the “tyranny of distance,” the isolation and remoteness of being on the farm should not exclude you from receiving a top level of service. We understand the challenges that distance bring – issues with internet efficiency (or having no internet at all), having to drive to the nearest town to receive help, wanting to use accounting software to help understand your business, but not knowing where to start. The friendly team at Abbotts can help.

By knowing the issues that affect you, we have tailored our farming consultant services to let you get on with your work, rest assured your personal or business taxation affairs and finances are being kept in order.

We can guide you and your business with specialist knowledge of agricultural-related accounting software like Agrimaster, Phoenix by AGDATA, AgProfit and Figured, including assisting with its integration to your accounting software. Our trusted advisors can also assist you in discussions with bankers and financiers, and support your personal and families wealth management with services like retirement planning or succession planning.
