Australian Farmers can deduct the cost of Fodder Storage Sheds over just 3 Years!
The Federal Government has announced new tax depreciation measures for primary producers in this year’s (2015) Federal Budget.
The move opens the door for farmers and other primary production businesses to claim accelerated depreciation on fodder storage (amongst other items).
This includes sheds used for fodder storage.
- Hay Sheds
- Grain Sheds
- Silage Sheds
- Sliding Roof Sheds used for stock feed (visit web page to view video on how these work)
- And sheds used for storing stock feed for any other stock
Under the new measures, primary producers can deduct the cost of fodder storage sheds over just three years, instead of up to 50 years previously.
Importantly, these measures
are available to all farmers…
It’s not just those who are classified as a small business. And there is no restriction on the value of your purchase on these sheds for fodder storage.
So now there are many good reasons to invest in a new shed for your hay, grain, silage … anything that involves storage of fodder.

Here’s how one SA farm business already made money from their Grant Sheds grain shed:
Almost Paid For The Shed In One Year!
Michael & Dianne Anderson have their own market for a particular grain they grow, and they store it themselves in their 15m x 27m x 6.3m Grant Sheds grain shed. They hold it in the shed for 3-6 months after harvest and, as Dianne says, “We always gain because of the price increase. We have found that it doesn’t take many years and we’ve actually gained a lot of money by holding over the grain when the prices is low.”
When you get 3 or 4 years that you’re gaining an extra $30-$50 a tonne, it doesn’t take long to pay the shed off.”
“In the first year the shed was up and we put grain in it, we had a heap of feed wheat that was only worth $160-$180 a tonne. We put it in the shed and sold it for $240 in March. So if the shed was full, it would have paid for itself in one year!”
