If you operate a primary production business, large or small, the recording of livestock head count can have a big impact on your year-end taxable income. Whether it be cattle, horses, bees or any other livestock, it’s important to maintain accurate records of all increases and decreases in head count. This includes:

· Purchases, recording both number and price paid

· Births, including insemination costs if any

· Sales, recording both number of amount received

· Deaths

· Stock killed for own use

· Total stock numbers at 30 June, being simply the number of stock you own at the end of
   the tax year

With 30 June 2016 fast approaching, now is a good time to commence counting your livestock to avoid the frustration of trying to “back track” after year end.
