You need an accountant who knows farmers and the business of farming. Ifac is a co-op and they know farming and farm tax, they are experts and I recommend them.
Teddy Cashman Dairy Farmer, ifac Board Member
I was of the opinion that I had a good tax advisor prior to moving to ifac. Ifac’s service goes beyond the traditional tax accountant. Their service matches my plans for the future of my farm with top class tax planning.
Larry Martin Dairy Farmer
I listen to farmers expressing concern about the service they are getting from their accountant. I tell them to join ifac as I am very happy with the service I am getting.
Pat Murphy Dairy & Beef Farmer
Getting the benefit of all the ifac specialists with one point of contact has been great for us. We're a growing business so having a partner who brings an external perspective is highly valuable.
