Enterprise Development

Enterprise Development & Property Management

At the  core of the business enterprise development and property management generally is undertaken either on behalf of:
• A city based, overseas or corporate investor who wishes to make an initial investment into agriculture or wants to expand his/her existing agricultural business
• An existing landowner who wishes to retain ownership of his/her rural asset but who wishes to stand aside from the day-to-day running of the operation.

For a ‘start up’ investment, Nick Huggins Group is generally required to:
• Complete a thorough due diligence on potential purchases for investors
• Provide assistance in purchasing the right asset at the best price
• From this point Nick Huggins Group will set up the entire operation, source suitable staff and put in place a well-proven management systems.
In the initial stages, whether it be a ‘start up’ or existing operation, an important role is the streamlining of reporting and financial control systems to meet the requirements of the investor, and his/her existing accounting and financial protocols.

NHG offer real time data to track the progress of your farm grazing investment via Maia Technology grazing platform.

On an ongoing basis, Nick Huggins would manage on behalf of the owners:
• All the day to day farm management
• Work with existing staff
• Review Occupational Health and Safety and farm reporting
• Undertake financial control and book keeping according to client requirements.

When first retained, and then on an annual basis, Nick Huggins Group would also complete a critical evaluation of the operation to ensure its optimal and sustainable performance.
In all instances, the development of long term plans backed by thorough annual budgeting, and regular budget and farm production reviews, are vital. Good communication between all parties is pivotal for ongoing success and client satisfaction.

As every business is unique, the details of management agreements are flexible to accommodate those circumstances. Clients agree on a billing cycle, whether it be on an irregular fee for service, monthly or quarterly basis. The long term relationship developed with many clients is testament to the success of this strategy.
