This week’s letter is A. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Welfare (Equine).
Well we’re back around to the letter A for the third look at an equine related career that falls under this letter of the alphabet. It’s tax time in Australia with the end of the financial year marking a busy period for accountants! This is no different for the equine business than for any other business – finances need to be in order.
To be able to seek advice and help from an accountant who is familiar with the equine industry I believe is a big bonus. If those helping out in the financial area of your business are also familiar with common terminology and costs in the equine industry, so much the better.
If you have an interest in providing financial services to equine businesses, consider:
- They may not be your only market, particularly if you’re starting out
- Getting an accounting/financial qualification
- Ways you can market yourself to those in the horse industry – at sales, competitions, information sessions
- What you can offer to the equine business that is different to other financial advisers who aren’t familiar with horses
