Free financial counselling for primary producers

Funded by the Federal and State governments, the Rural Financial Counselling Service (Southern Queensland) delivers a Small Business program and a rural program with two experienced teams of financial counsellors.


PRIMARY producers and small business owners in Southern Queensland can plan for the future as they address the drought, bushfires and COVID-19 recovery with free financial counselling from locally based specialist financial counsellors.

Funded by the Federal and State governments, the Rural Financial Counselling Service (Southern Queensland) delivers a Small Business program and a rural program with two experienced teams of financial counsellors.

“Our team of nearly 40 financial counsellors is based in a variety of locations across Southern Queensland and service from Rockhampton across to Quilpie and Bulloo Regional Council areas and south to the border,” said RDCSSQ CEO, Jenny Whip.

With a focus on improving the financial outlook for rural and regional small businesses and primary producers, the service supports clients with identifying financial and business options, bank negotiation preparations, government support applications, business planning, preparing and understanding financial reports and providing referrals to relevant government departments.

“The 2019/2020 financial year has been a tough one financially, there’s no question about that,” Jenny said.

“For primary producers and associated small businesses, it’s all about recovering from one of the harshest drought this decade and for regional small businesses, it’s Coronavirus and in some cases, sadly, it’s both.”

Ms Whip said the service has a team of Financial Counsellors to support clients as they look forward and get on the front foot to deal with stress points in their business operations.

To arrange your free, impartial, confidential appointment, contact the small business team on 1300 732 777 or the rural service on 07 46 22 5500 or visit www.rfcssq.org.au.
