Agribusiness is a significant contributor to the Australian economy and produces the vast majority of food consumed by Australians. Agribusiness has an ever increasing role in exporting processed foods to our neighbours in Asia and beyond.

It is essential to ensure that agribusiness activities are carried on in an optimum business structure. However, as a business evolves restructuring may be required while ensuring that the structure aligns with effective succession and estate planning objectives. To enable agribusiness to attract the “right” people it is important that tax effective remuneration strategies are in place. Unsurprisingly, agribusiness has its own unique set of taxation issues associated with the receipt of income (including income smoothing strategies), the taxation of compensation amounts and special rules associated with deductibility of capital expenditure.

Needless to say, there are a whole host of commercial and taxation issues to consider when exiting an agribusiness operation. Agribusiness clients rely on the advice provided by their professional tax adviser and accordingly this dedicated day and a half program provides delegates with the opportunity to engage with specialists in the area. The program addresses key agribusiness taxation issues encountered by tax professionals and provides them with the tools to assist their clients to acquit their taxation obligations effectively.


  • Effective structuring and re-structuring of agribusiness operations including evaluating whether each structure can deliver a tax effective exit from (sale of) an agribusiness enterprise.
  • Identifying and managing the taxation of income flows in an agribusiness enterprise, reviewing the taxation of compensation receipts and optimizing capital allowance deductions.
  • Tax effective remuneration strategies for agribusiness.
