Changes to the asset test for Farm Household Allowance (FHA)

A legislative change has come into effect that exempts certain assets from the FHA. Farmers and their partners can now apply (or re-apply) for FHA and have certain assets, including the net value of water assets up to $1.1 million, exempt from the FHA asset test.

If you believe that this change is relevant to you, please call to the Farmer Assistance Hotline on 132 316 or talk to your Farm Household Case Officer or Rural Financial Counsellor. Your financial advisor or accountant may also be able to help.

If you have been experiencing extended delays and frustrations with the FHA process, please contact the SADA Office on 08 8293 2399 or email sada@sada.asn.au
