Farm Debt Services
The Farm Debt Restructure Office (FDRO) administers the Farm Business Analysis Assistance program. This program is a free no obligation service, designed to assist primary producers experiencing financial difficulties to get back on track with their finances.
As of 1 July 2017 the Farm Business Debt Mediation Act 2017 (Qld) (the Act) replaces the voluntary mediation scheme that was part of the Queensland Farm Finance Strategy. The purpose of the Act is to provide an efficient and equitable way for farmers and mortgagees to attempt to resolve matters relating to farm business debts. Mediation is required before mortgagees can take possession of a property or other enforcement action under a farm mortgage.
