Curious About Cannabis? Accounting & Finance Basics Webcast (CAN)

February 24th, 2022

A multi-billion-dollar industry with a growing number of states legalizing adult recreational use, cannabis is here to stay. For those looking to find an accounting niche that is leading-edge, complex, and unique, cannabis accounting is a burgeoning field. There is a growing need across our country for measured, accurate tax work in this industry. When considering cannabis as a niche, there are four questions a practitioner should ask themselves: Do I know my client? Understanding industry operators and ones client is crucial in successful, effective partnerships. Do I know their compliance environment? State regulations and laws impacting the cannabis industry are the bedrock upon which you build and defend your tax position. What is my tax position? A thoughtful tax position is crucial to preserving your professional integrity. Finally, do I want to do this? Considering how you will engage with clients through hard conversations, boundary setting and activating professional skepticism are valuable activities before jumping into cannabis. Join Katye, in a conversation about this pioneering corner of the accounting world.
