Business Advice and Support to Give You Peace of Mind

As a business owner, we understand how busy you are growing your business, so we help you manage the governance for you and help you get out of your business and work on the most important issues. Our services include one-off scopes of work and our twelve month one on one coaching program known as Ag Pro by one of our internally accredited advisors.

All businesses are structured differently with their own business lifecycle, often comprising multiple stakeholders and complex ownership structures. We can produce accurate and professional financial reports in one succinct dashboard format which can then be distributed regularly to all parties involved. We understand that the demand for accurate, real-time information is crucial for your business success and growth.

Business Advice and Support

Cashflow Forecast

An important part of our business advisory service is establishing a current cashflow forecast for your business so that you’re bank ready. Our team will work with you to complete a comprehensive cashflow forecasting for your business. By developing an accurate cashflow forecast over a specific period of time, you’ll be in a better position to:
• Predict future cash positions.
• Avoid cash shortages.
• Be bank ready for the completion of financial transactions.

Goal Setting

Family business owners need to have aligned goals so that everyone in the team understands what is happening in the farming business. Our goal setting workshops help you to understand what is important to you and your business in the long and short term. Often it is easier to think strategically when you are in one of our offices and not IN your business. Our clients spend most of their time executing and these sessions help those owners set their strategic direction.

Business Planning

The SproutAg business review workshop helps to reconcile the big thinking from our goal setting workshop to help business owners understand where they are in meeting their goals. By completing a thorough financial analysis of key numbers and modelling goals, we help them understand their current position, so they can prioritise the most important aspects of their business. The business analysis session is based around substantiating the goals set and this may take several sessions to get where you want to get to.

Enterprise Analysis

Enterprise planning is an analysis of the current business that will provide multiple scenario options around goals and what if scenarios that include gross margin analysis. This workshop explores scale in a business and the impact it has over time as well as cost of production.

This exercise is an opportunity for our advisors to break down each enterprise and to test the way things are currently done on the farm. The team at SproutAg will use a range of tools to help you understand the key concepts in your business. These tools may include gross margin analysis, enterprise overview, livestock trading calculators, what if scenarios, cashflow forecasting and testing a business plan.


As part of our Ag Pro program our advisors will work with you to troubleshoot specific topics to help your business. These topics may be common questions in farming businesses such as:
• Should I lease or should I buy?
• Should I get a contractor in or buy farm gear?
• Acquisition analysis
• Cost of production and break-even points
• Livestock trading scenarios?
• Machinery Investment Calculators
• Enterprise scale tools and scenarios
• Analysis of where your money was spent last year
• Getting the whole team going in the one direction and people programs

One-on-One Support - Our Ag Pro Program
