Save time and money on global payments within the agriculture industry

The agriculture sector is one of the most affected by international trends and currency markets, with trade demand and import/export costs hugely impactful on the industry as a whole.

This poses a number of challenges for the industry, increasing the need for companies to protect their profits and mitigate their foreign exchange risk.

 

How foreign exchange can affect the agriculture industry

Transferring money from pounds to foreign currencies is commonplace for many agricultural practices, including importing machinery and other supplies from abroad and exporting goods to international buyers and shippers. In addition, your company may also employ an international workforce of staff who wish to receive payment in a foreign currency and repatriate overseas.

All of these payments, especially if made repeatedly, can incur significant costs if a poor exchange rate is agreed, while costly transfer fees from banks and FX providers can damage your profits. Fortunately, by planning all your foreign exchange exposure and budgets well in advance, you can help to protect your margins.

How will currency exchange for agriculture change after Brexit?

Farms both large and small import agricultural machinery and supplies from the EU, sometimes pre-ordering items in advance, which may result in them paying much more than anticipated if the pound falls after the UK has left the European Union.

Another change brought on by Brexit is the adjustment in receiving the Single Farm Payment. Currently, British farmers have the option to receive this subsidy from the EU in pounds or in euros, and we have helped many receive their money in euros and exchange into pounds.

While the future of subsidies is in question and may not require foreign exchange in the future, we can help farmers make the most of any outstanding payments and limit their currency exposure.
