Farm Accounts Service
SAC Consulting is contracted by RESAS to survey 500 Scottish farms annually to provide income estimates for the Scottish and UK governments, plus the European Commission (FADN). All farm types except specialist pig, poultry and horticultural farms are surveyed with data aggregated to ensure the confidentiality of the farmers that volunteer their figures. The data is integral to informing policy decision making and is used by economists in many government funded research programmes. In addition, the data is aggregated to provide benchmarks that are posted on the FAS website for use by farmers seeking to improve farm performance (see the farm business section on the FAS website).
If you would like to know more about the survey, please contact Kev Bevan.
