The Managing Farm Risk Programme provides rebates for advice and assessments to help farmers prepare and apply for a new insurance policy that assists with the management of drought and other production and market risks. These one-off rebates will be for half of the costs incurred by eligible farm businesses, up to a maximum of $2 500 (GST exclusive). The rebates are not for insurance policy premiums.
Eligible farm businesses can apply for a rebate of the costs of engaging suitably qualified service providers to carry out one or more of these activities:
- Undertaking an assessment required by an insurance provider.
- Compiling historical farm financial performance and production data.
- Analysing insurance options based on a long-term, whole-of-farm risk assessment.
Applicants should seek advice before deciding on any financial product, including insurance.
