Best Accounting Software for Farmers

Great accounting software is becoming a no-brainer for farming businesses, helping farmers save time on bookkeeping and getting back to the work they love. Below, we've handpicked our favourite accounting platforms for your finances and livestock reconciliation - worth checking out 👍


Xero describes themselves as “beautifully simple” accounting software that makes bookkeeping for small business easy. Xero can help farmers with paying bills, claiming expenses, invoicing, payroll and more. You can also manage your cash flow with Xero. A few bonuses and why we think Xero is a good fit for farmers:

  • It’s simple to use
  • You can access it from anywhere (cloud-based) via an app
  • Makes payroll straightforward
  • Plenty of helpful checklists and resources for small businesses


If you want to support Aussie business, then MYOB could be for you. It’s been around longer than Xero, founded in the early 1980s. MYOB offers a few more pricing options than Xero, but comparable. MYOB is also cloud-based so that it’s accessible anywhere. Positives about MYOB:

  • Phone support 9am-5pm 7 days a week
  • Some packages have unlimited payroll, which is perfect for large operations
  • They offer more users for some subscriptions than Xero
  • They have discounts for the first few months, which makes it cost-effective to trial
