Farm Management Deposit

Primary producers can set aside pre-tax income in good years to use when the farm isn’t making as much money as usual or the season isn’t so great. 

Help Minimise Risk
Farming can be a risky business so we’ve developed a Farm Management Deposit account to help manage some of this risk. In some circumstances, by depositing funds into a Farm Management Deposit account, you may be able to reduce your taxable income for the year by the amount of the deposit (up to a maximum amount of $800,000).
