Cannabis Companies Suffer From a Lack of Good CPAs

We believe cannabis companies are legitimate businesses. Most CPA firms don’t. Thus, the industry is chronically underserved. We’ll treat your cannabis business with the same level of care and attention to detail as any other Dark Horse business client.

Challenges Faced by Cannabis Companies

Too many cannabis businesses lack access to the competent accounting expertise, tax planning, and CFO advisory that is more readily available to businesses outside the cannabis industry.

Most CPA firms miss valuable tax deductions due to a lack of expertise in IRS § 280E
Most bookkeepers lack understanding of proper accounting under IRS § 280E
Few accounting firms are aware of the myriad state laws and regulations. Even fewer help clients navigate this landscape.
Finding the right firm is difficult since many CPAs have stigmatized the industry
Unlicensed professionals lack the expertise and service delivery model to appropriately advise cannabis businesses
Of the competent cannabis CPAs, few work alongside clients as partners. Most are simply vendors.

Our services include tax preparation, strategic tax planning, bookkeeping, outsourced accounting and Fraction CFO services to maximize the money your business earns and the money you keep as an owner.

Kerri L.
In the couple of months that Sarah and I have been working together, she's been very generous with her time, knowledge, and support. She's both excited by and patient with my questions, as I really like to understand why things are what they are. She's also willing to learn with me, which is always awesome. Life is just so much more wonderful when professional services are conducted by feeling humans.

IRS Section 280E

Section 280E can profoundly impact a cannabis business’s tax bill. We maximize your deductions under 280E with IRS audit-defensible positions.
