This will create huge value when the company interacts with investors, lenders, state auditors and IRS.
Lower Taxes: Did you know GAAP Cost Accounting is required to be performed all year (not just year-end at tax prep time) for you to maximize your tax deductions under IRC 471-11? These deductions are not allowed if you are not doing this, and it’s likely you aren’t as well as 90% of business owners aren’t doing any cost accounting periodically.
Expertise: We know accounting & tax, we know finance, and we know operations. Our national network of cannabis accounting, tax and legal experts covers bookkeeping, controller, CFO, tax planning and tax prep.
Peace of Mind: We implement accounting procedures & processes that will “self-check/fix errors”, building better financials, getting tax prep work completed on time, reviewing State seed to sale traceability compliance processes and more so you can “sleep better at night”.
Availability: Many of our competition/CPAs are extremely unavailable and even when they call you back, they will be charging you for every 15 minutes. Additionally, they usually don’t specialize in your niche and haven’t worked in the industry. We will turn emails around within one day and are always available for calls. We are here when you need us.
