NFUS Starts 2016 on a Positive Financial Footing

NFU Scotland finished 2015 in the black, and begins the New Year on a sound financial footing.

As well as reducing administrative expenditure by £10,173, the Union increased its turnover by £85,344.   For the period of 1 November 2014 to 31 October 2015, the Union ended with a surplus of £50,197, compared to a loss last year of £60,519.

Members will now have received both the financial and annual reports with the January edition of the Scottish Farming Leader, summarising some of the Union’s work over the last 12 months.

NFU Scotland’s Chief Executive Scott Walker commented: “Going into 2016 we anticipate that it will be a difficult year, for both the Union as well as our thousands of members.   I know that many of our members are struggling financially and that cash flow will be a severe problem for some.

 “NFU Scotland continues to provide a high quality service, lobbying, influencing legislation, supporting individual members, representing the wider industry and working to give members better value for their membership through exclusive discounts.

“Last year we held more events than ever to support our members - from renewable events to provide sound, independent advice to farmers and land managers to workshops on agricultural vehicle transportation issues to help our members cope with the increasing complexity of ensuring their farm vehicles comply with the law.   These events deliver benefits to our members alongside our core lobbying activity.”
