Rural Financial Counselling Services extended to small businesses. 

Funding to Primary Production Services to support financial counselling services for rural businesses will more than double this year. 

The Rural Financial Counselling Service (RFCS) has flagged a need to expand its services to support small businesses in rural areas that provide services to primary producers. 

If you are a farmer, forester, professional fisher or you run a small business supporting these industries the RFCS is available to give you a hand. 

The RFCS can provide valuable information to suppliers, lenders, community groups, local governments and those working in health and welfare.  For more information click here… 

"While rainfall did improve throughout August, we know that many growers are looking at a challenging harvest this season, we are already seeing impacts on rural small businesses as farmers tighten their belts, it's important that we get in early to provide the financial counselling support to help them through this tough time.” said Minister for Regional Development; Agriculture and Food Hon Alannah MacTiernan MLC
