Cannabis Accounting 101

Cannabis Accounting and Taxes

Accounting in the cannabis industry is anything but EASY.

Operating in the cannabis industry is challenging. Cannabis businesses that directly sell THC are exposed to many obstacles in their business. From large regulatory fines for not having accurate books and records, punitive taxation at the federal level, to multiple layers of taxation at the state level, and limited banking.

Cannabis accounting is more than understanding bookkeeping, quickbooks or journal entries.

Cannabis accounting is understanding how your accounting systems work, what inventory costs are, how to analyze your gross margin and your cost of goods, and what internal controls are.

In this course you will learn:

  • How to understand and analyze your financial statements
  • What 280E is, how it impacts your business
  • Cost saving strategies for your business
  • Methods for controlling cash and mitigating fraud
  • Methods for controlling inventory and mitigating theft
  • Building ethics and compliance into your business

You will have instant access to the following downloadable tools:

  • Sample chart of accounts for a cannabis business
  • 280E Allocation worksheet
  • Year end accounting checklist

If you are a finance professional, cannabis business owner, or consultant serving the cannabis industry, it is your professional duty to understand the basics of cannabis accounting.
