FARMit is the brainchild of Brett and Kerry Bennett. It was born out of their lifelong passion for the rural sector, but an increasing frustration with traditional accounting and a belief that rural clients deserved more. For FARMit it’s about empowering clients to make informed decisions and work smarter. It is their ability to read a situation and come up with solutions that sets them apart from your run of the mill accountant. With over 35 years rural accounting experience FARMit Accountants are forging forward by breaking down traditional barriers and offering efficient, simplified reporting and information to help the farming sector make sound business decisions. They offer fixed priced packages so you know exactly what you are getting and paying for. By using Figured hand in hand with Xero you will be able to track your cash flow forecasts, profit and loss and much more using real time figures.

BRG is owned by two Chartered Accountants who grew up on dairy farms. We love technology and had Xero change our lives forever in 2012 at the Xero Conference. Xero & the cloud has changed the way we operate as Chartered Accountants and how we interact with our clients. In the old world – we would meet once a year with our clients looking backward. Xero and Figured have changed that world. What they give us is a really efficient system to not only stay on top of what’s going on now but to be constantly looking forward. This has been a game changer in terms of the client/accountant relationship. We are now having conversations about real time information. We can turn the budgeting process into a good rolling forecast which is totally relevant. Clients are making decisions based on excellent, timely financial information – that traditionally was not available to SMEs. In an environment that constantly throws us challenges – Xero and Figured allow our clients to either weather the storm or take advantage of opportunities. This has been life changing. Thank you Figured.
