ACCOUNTING & REVIEW SERVICES
We believe that our partnership with clients includes being proactive in planning your success and deliver our most valuable assets- our support, our expertise, and our time. This engagement will be performed by Abraham Finberg CPA. Recently we wrote an article on whether Cannabis companies should change their method of accounting. Please find the full article here.
A preparation or compilation engagement may further substantiate your accounting as discussed in our article above and IRC 471(c). In addition, we will file a form 3115 Change of Accounting Method with your Federal income tax return.
We can consult with your internal and external accounting staff on your chart of accounts- including allocation between costs of goods sold and SG&A (sales, general, and administrative) costs.
Segregating costs appropriately are critical in cannabis businesses in light of the deductibility of 280E expenses. We can assist you in determining appropriate methodology for allocating material, facility, payroll, and overhead costs in light of current tax law.
