Agriculture – it’s one of Canada’s core industries. It has also always been one of MNP’s key areas of focus. We have invested more time and resources into understanding agriculture than any other accounting or business consulting firm in Canada.
Working with governments, as well as numerous industry and specialty groups, our Agriculture specialists have deep roots in the industry. Some come from family farm backgrounds, while others continue to operate a farm of their own; all are extremely passionate about agriculture.
Our team brings a range of specialized expertise in regards to all aspects of agricultural business – from primary producers through to food & beverage processors. Learn more about our tailored service offerings below.
OUR FOCUS ON PRIMARY PRODUCERS
OUR FOCUS ON LIVESTOCK OPERATIONS
With over 16,000 agriculture clients and a team of over 600 agriculture specialists, MNP knows agriculture. We recognize the complexity of this industry and the constantly fluctuating factors that can significantly impact your success; from changes in weather patterns to global economic shifts to transportation challenges. For operations to not only survive but thrive in this ever-changing climate, Canadian producers need insight and strategies for both mitigating risk and creating opportunity.
Whatever the size of your operation, you require accurate and timely financial reporting, including audits, reviews and compilations. We offer a range of value-added assurance solutions that go well beyond traditional accounting, including management reporting to help you make more informed decisions and specialized financial statements for agriculture businesses.
Assurance and Accounting Services
Whether your agricultural operation is small or large, you may require assurance and accounting services to access funding, ensure compliance or validate your current business position. We provide peace-of-mind by delivering audits, reviews, compilations (Notice to Readers) and financial forecasts and projections, taking the time to walk you through the details and answering all your questions. Where an assurance engagement isn’t needed, we can provide accounting and bookkeeping services, including monthly assistance with data entry and reconciliations, accounting and payroll software conversions and training on year-end financial statement preparation.
Our team contains some of Canada’s leading agricultural consultants and professional agrologists. We help optimize your processes, assess your growth options and obtain financing for various ventures, amongst many other consulting services.
Our agricultural and farm management consultants are known as leading advisors to agriculture operators and various levels of government across Canada. Working closely with our clients, we help them develop strategies and business plans which assess viability and assist in obtaining financing for agricultural ventures in almost every agricultural sector. In addition, we bring extensive expertise in the structure and processes of Canada’s unique supply management system for dairy, chicken, eggs, turkey and broiler hatching eggs. Our knowledge base in agriculture includes 16 full-time agrologists with wide sector experience. Many of our agrologists are partners and leaders in the firm, setting us apart among Canada’s major accounting and consulting firms in our ability to understand and better serve your industry.
