Farm Accounting Made Easy (FAME) is a four-part training series designed to teach accountants, of all skill levels, farm accounting. The modules are designed to be studied at your own pace and include self assessment exercises and projects. Each module also includes a selection of relevant articles from Farm Accounting NZ, a quarterly publication, as essential readings.
This series starts by introducing students to the basics of farm accounting, covering topics such as coding of farmer’s typical types of income and expenses. Later modules cover more complex farm accounting methods and tools, such as income equalisation deposits, fertiliser spreading, livestock valuation, and accounting for the sales and purchases of farms.
Modules can be completed in isolation, but for maximum benefit, we recommend you complete the whole series. For more information, phone 06 758 5273.
