Funded by the Federal Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, the Rural Financial Counselling service provides free rural financial counselling to primary producers, fishers and small rural businesses* who are suffering financial hardship and who have no alternative sources of impartial support.

*’Small rural business’ for the purposes of the Program is defined as a rural business that employs no more than ten full-time-equivalent (38 hours per week) employees and provides the majority of its services to primary producers and is directly involved in primary production (e.g. fencing, harvesting, spraying or stock management).
