What we do
The Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) has been supporting farmers and rural-related businesses for more than 30 years. One of 12 service providers nationally and a member of RFCS Network, RBS delivers the RFCS in South Australia and the Northern Territory. Our services are free, independent and confidential for eligible clients.
Our qualified Rural Financial Counsellors can talk with you about your goals and plans for your business, discuss risk management and other strategies you may have, assess the options which may be available and help to make action plans to work towards business goals.
Our friendly and professional team can help you with:
- Understanding your financial position
- Future projections and scenarios
- Exploring financial assistance options
- Preparing for succession planning
- Planning family meetings
- Referrals to other support
We can work with clients for up to three years. Our vision is to build the resilience of Australian farm businesses – and the rural communities in which they live and do business.
Custom tools to assist our clients
Rural Business Support has developed custom tools that can assist our clients to better understand their financial position and simplify the task of assessing “where is my business now?”, providing a range of future scenarios.
Our Financial Counsellors use these tools to ensure that relevant information is captured to better assist our clients in their business analysis and decision making, in order for them to take action.
