Farm Management Deposits Scheme

Program Closes: Ongoing Run By: Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Further Information: https://www.agriculture.gov.au/agriculture-land/farm-food-drought/drought/fmd

The Farm Management Deposit (FMD) Scheme assists primary producers to deal more effectively with fluctuations in cash flows. It is designed to increase the self-reliance of Australian primary producers by helping them manage their financial risk and meet their business costs in low-income years by building up cash reserves.

The scheme allows eligible primary producers to set aside pre-tax income which they can draw on in future years when they need it, such as for restocking or replanting when conditions start to improve.

Income deposited into an FMD account is tax deductible in the financial year the deposit is made. It becomes taxable income in the financial year in which it is withdrawn (repaid).
