Agricultural businesses in the UK face many challenges, however, some of the most pressing are being exacerbated by changes in subsidy and market volatility. Having the best advisory team on hand to help, and being equipped with the best tools to assist in the process, has never been more important.
As the nights get shorter and tractors spend more time in sheds than in fields, it’s the time when farms can start to analyse what went well in the previous season - and what didn't go so well. We caught up with Ryan Gue, of Huddlestone Farmers, a mixed dairy, sheep, beef and arable farm with holdings in West Sussex and the Scottish Borders, about harvest 2021 and the implications for the year ahead.
We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Agstute - the new service from Promar, powered by Figured and Xero. This partnership will see Figured form a key element of the technology to support Promar who provide leading advice and data services to over 1,000 clients across the UK.
Figured Commercial Manager is designed specifically for accounting practices that are wanting to keep their non-farming clients reporting streamlined within the practice. It includes planning & reporting without the production trackers, with access to the scenarios tool and includes custom account categories.
As the agricultural sector faces a period of funding transition and change, many landowners will be looking much more closely around different options for their farming businesses. As the ELM funding programmes crystalise, there will be some opportunities but also a funding shortfall to work through for many.
We are delighted to announce the release of the new one-click reconciling of Xero actuals in Trackers feature to ensure all your livestock, horticulture and wool tracking is up to date, accurate, and seamlessly reconciles with your accounting records in Xero.
After finding their previous farm finance platform painful and time-consuming, Jayne and Tim haven’t looked back since they switched their southland farm to Figured.
Figured has been selected as the joint winner, alongside Xero, as the AgTech Finance Solution of the Year at the 2021 AgTech Breakthrough Awards. Read the full press release here.
“It means really good budgeting, planning, cash flow and break-even analysis, great reports including comparing actuals to variances. We get great insights and some light-bulb moments." - Turner Polzin, Adams Brown
