LCWiAN - Business Planning Workshop
Join us for an informative workshop examining farm business planning, facilitated and delivered by Chris Scheid from ProAdvice in Lucindale on 18 May - morning tea available from 9.30am, the workshop starts at 10.00am.
As part of your registration, our workshop organisation ProAdvice, will complete a Quick Business Analysis (QBA) on your business.
Once you have registered you will receive an information form that you return to ProAdvice along with 2 years of taxation financials (including profit & loss, balance sheet and livestock trading accounts).
Why does ProAdvice ask for this information?
To assist you to obtain the maximum benefit from your attendance at the workshop, prior to your attendance, ProAdvice turns your taxation financials into ‘real’ (farm management) profit/loss and balance sheet figures to give you a ‘real understanding’ of your business' key profit and banking ratios.
Then at the workshop, they will work with you (“work on your own business”) and provide you with your ‘real’ (farm management) profit/loss and balance sheet figures to compare.
Please rest assured that only ProAdvice (who are confidentiality bound), will have access to your taxation financials. Your taxation financials remain with ProAdvice ‘in confidence’.
You are not required to share this information with any other participants at the workshop.
To gain the maximum benefit from the workshop we encourage you to register early and to allow ProAdvice time to complete your business analysis in time for the workshop, registrations are required no later than 13 May.
