Accountants Get in Behind New Zealand Dairy Farmers
NZ CA Limited announces Gold Sponsorship of 2016 Dairy Business of the Year
Improving farm profitability and developing resilient and sustainable farming systems are two of the key drivers behind NZ Chartered Accountants Limited’s (NZ CA) gold sponsorship of this year’s Dairy Business of the Year (DBOY).
Sue Merriman, NZ CA’s chairperson and also partner in Greymouth chartered accountants Marshall & Heaphy Limited, says, “The group is delighted to be a Gold Sponsor of the 2016 Dairy Business of the Year. With so many of our member firms located in provincial New Zealand and having dairy farm businesses as clients, it’s a logical move for the group to be involved in supporting and further developing these businesses. With the continuing slump in milk solid prices this year and the effect of this on farm businesses, it’s more important than ever that dairy farmers get good independent business advice from their chartered accountants.
“So, not only are we keen to continue to work with dairy businesses to support and improve their business systems and profitability, but we’re also eager to acknowledge and reinforce the value to a business of motivated and innovative owners and managers.”
Entries for the 2016 Dairy Business of the Year close on Thursday, 31 March. Each entry will be assessed, analysed and scored. From those entries a shortlist will be compiled, and the finalists audited. The winner of the 2016 Dairy Business of the Year will be announced on 23 June, together with the winners of the best financial performance, eight regional award winners, best people management, best environmental score and business resilience awards.
“Our NZ CA member firms have a strong interest in supporting their dairy business clients to achieve a profitable well-run sustainable business. By entering the awards, dairy farmers will have an opportunity to work on their businesses - not just in the business, benchmark themselves against industry leaders and challenge their current farming systems.”
“We’re very much looking forward to being deeply involved in this gold sponsorship. Our member firms will be taking a hands-on approach, pulling on their gumboots and will be attending the autumn Regional Optimisation Days and the Field Days to be held in late spring,” says Sue Merriman.
NZ CA is an association of independent chartered accountants located throughout New Zealand. NZ CA’s mission is to help its 28 member firms improve their business delivery to their valued clients. More information can be found at www.nzca.com
