For many Australians, their most important retirement investment is superannuation. Compulsory contributions for employees and tax incentives for businesses has made superannuation a ‘go-to’ when planning for a secure retirement.

Many Australian farmers have identified the benefits of placing their most substantial asset; farmland, into a tax effective and protective environment conducive to aiding a secure retirement.
