Brian’s CPA Trendlines article May 2019
“There is only one right way to do cannabis accounting,” he writes. “Doing accrual/cost accounting in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) ensures that you pay as little tax as possible, are always state compliant and IRS audit-ready, and have financial statements ready for securing investors and lenders. In addition, performance metrics can be harnessed from your financials and used to set goals for operations and management.”
