We can prepare realistic cash flow budgets that show the immediate or systematic cash requirements of the business. These budgets are not generated in isolation but incorporate all the planned operations on the farm for the future periods. The budgets are used as a monitoring resource throughout the year to back a day-to-day management and allow minute calculation in cost of production.

Discussion and documentation allocates a clear strategy to be put in place allowing all stakeholders see where the business is heading for and what role they will have to undertake.
