Strategic Business Advice
Over our 30 year history, we have been accountants and advisers to some of the state’s leading primary producers and agribusiness operations.
We have experience in advising clients across the spectrum of the sector, from farm to abattoir, to the export and retail markets.
Our experience and industry knowledge is applied to assist our clients to structure their operations to minimise tax, maximise after tax profits and access government concessions as they are available.
We collaborate with farming families and corporates to assist them in establishing governance frameworks in relation to the management of the business, given the sensitivities of business in families, we are often called upon to mediate to ensure family relationships are preserved during business discussions.
We have the expertise to provide our clients with specialised advice in succession planning assisting with the transition of the owners to retirement whilst enabling a smooth management handover to the next generation or readying the business for sale. We actively support our clients during negotiations involving the sales or acquisitions of property including finance applications and structuring.
Feedlotting is a highly specialised business, more akin to manufacturing than a typical agribusiness, and requires specialised advice and modelling assistance.
Financial success is highly dependent upon operators understanding their working capital cycle as well as capital funding needs generally. We regularly work with our clients in this industry building models for their internal reporting as well as working with their financial institution to obtain appropriate funding in optimal structures.
In recent years there has been an increase in corporate activity in feedlots with vertical integration delivering improved products and returns, operators with a good handle on their business financials are well placed to assess and benefit from these opportunities.
The meat processing sector is a significant contributor to the Australian economy and a makes a substantial contribution to exports. Queensland is the single biggest state contributing livestock and product produced.
Hanrick Curran has been acting for Abattoirs for a number of years and understands the key challenges for operating in this industry, which include processing efficiencies, automation, human resource issues and managing their working capital cycle.
Hanrick Curran applies our financial and industry operational knowledge of the sector from the farm gate to the plate to support businesses in the retail and wholesale distribution network of meat products.
Distribution operations extend from Butcher shops to wholesale meat distributors into the domestic and export markets.
Critical to financial success is an understanding and ongoing management of working capital requirements, margins and cost structure. Hanrick Curran is well placed to provide the management team with financial models, insightful reporting and advisory board services to ensure sustainable profitability.
Hanrick Curran is pleased to have been appointed by Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA) on its panel of expert advisers to deliver Farm Business Analysis and Assistance program funded by a new Farm Debt Restructure Office.

Hear what our clients have to say:
“Hanrick Curran helped us to identify an ineffective loan structure and secure the right finance to support our business growth and development. Owen took the time to understand our finances and communicated these so eloquently to the bank. By collaborating with the Bank Manager Owen helped us save a substantial amount of interest resulting in additional cashflow for our business. He cut through the bank jargon and was able to bridge the gap and explain it in terms we understood.”
