The Farm Business Review Tool can help you assess your business and get ready for a world without BPS payments.

The tool is made up of three components which can help you assess your business and be prepared for the reduction in BPS payments. They are:

  • BPS Impact Calculator: see how the reduction in direct payments affects your business
  • Business Resilience Assessment: review your business and learn about ways to improve
  • KPI Express Calculator: compare how your farm is performing against industry target
