GET STARTED TODAY

Before we dive into the details of the program...


We’d like for you to take a moment to imagine...

  • Take yourself out of your current situation as an accounting professional, and imagine a scenario where you aren’t being told what you are worth as a professional (by your boss, employer, clients, colleagues, etc).
  • Where you aren’t being undercut because “someone else can do it cheaper.”
  • Where you’re able to choose your clients and who you work with, versus taking what you can get.
  • Where you’re working with clients and projects that are challenging, yet exciting because you are able to attribute how your work creates value in their business.
  • Where you’re known as THE EXPERT  in one of the fastest growing industries in the country.

The choice is yours, and that choice looks like becoming a DOPE CFO CANNABIS ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONAL.

The Proper Accounting Team for a Cannabis Company Must:

  • Understand the various entity types within the industry, and their specific needs (grow/farms, extract/edible, dispensary, and entities with multiple cannabis business types).
  • Understand how to properly do GAAP accrual and cost absorption accounting.
  • Have the right tools to do proper bookkeeping and reporting for both IRS and State compliance. AND, to help CEOs and investors have insight on the financial health of their company.
  • Understand how to prepare the proper monthly reports so that their clients are always AUDIT, LENDER, AND INVESTOR READY.
  • Understand cannabis tax issues including 280e, 471, and applicable court cases.

What if we told you that if you wanted to launch your own cannabis accounting or bookkeeping firm TODAY?


AND you will confidently be able to provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE, and WOW your CEO clients every month!

You see, the reality is that of the 9,000+ legally licensed cannabis businesses, the majority of them have inexperienced and untrained bookkeepers that simply aren’t able to do the complex cost and accrual accounting required.

They don’t understand how to navigate 280e and 471 tax rules, which is dangerous for such an audit prone industry. Leaving these businesses open to huge fines and penalties, and most important, leaving LOTS OF money on the table for these companies.

AND that a simple email or a phone call from a professional like you, that has the resources and can create the results that come from a program like ours, is what this industry needs. We are providing the EXACT SYSTEM that we, and others that have successfully completed our training, have used to:

  • Get new cannabis clients & onboard them successfully
  • Provide monthly accounting required by State/IRS
  • Provide monthly “value-add” documents to all your clients
  • …and so much more.

So if you’re ready and you’ve decided...


✔  YES to working in the cannabis industry.

✔  YES to becoming a specialist in a niche that desperately needs your passion, expertise, and commitment to WORLD-CLASS SERVICE.

✔  YES to working with other like-minded professionals so that you can learn, share knowledge, wins, and stay on top of this fast-paced, highly regulated industry.

Then, you’re ready to take the first step in becoming a DOPE ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONAL.

 

LET'S GO!

Our Cannabis Accounting program is for seasoned accounting professionals (bookkeepers, tax professionals, Controllers, CFOs, CPAs, etc) who are looking to build a cannabis accounting practice, or to add the expertise and services to their existing business.

The goal of the program is to give you the tools that you need in order to get up and running quickly, which includes:


Our Easy 1-2-3 Cannabis CEO Outreach System

We provide our proven system for how we prospect QUALIFIED cannabis CEOs, and land clients that pay us $1000+/month for our services.  We bill on value and never cost perhour.

Our Proven Process For Closing New Business

Even if you hate sales, and marketing isn’t your skill set, don’t worry. If you follow our system which includes emails, sales scripts, and offer letter templates, you will have what you need in order to help you land YOUR FIRST, cannabis client.

We Understand The Pain Of Cannabis CEOs...

So our messaging is specifically crafted in such a way that you attract the clients that will benefit most from your help and support.

In terms of providing support to your clients, we give you every tool that you will need in order to provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE to their business, and WOW them with your expertise, even if you do not have an accounting degree.

Our program has templates that were developed by licensed CPAs with over 20 years of experience. Many of these documents have been reviewed by cannabis attorneys, and have been used to provide services to complex businesses (and of course cannabis companies) of all shapes and sizes. 

Most important, they are specifically tailored to the various cannabis entity types. These documents and templates include:

 

EXCEL AND QUICKBOOKS READY CHART OF ACCOUNTS

SPECIFIC to grows/farms, dispensaries, and complex entities.   

Note: Quickbooks and other common systems DO NOT have cannabis chart of accounts.  

COMPLETE MONTH-END TIE OUT SYSTEM

Highly detailed template file with reconciliations and tie outs of every balance sheet and P&L account, which are tied from source documents to:

  • Accounting records
  • Trial balance and reconciliations
  • Final consolidated financials

These month end files help ensure your client is consistently “AUDIT READY,” with a “perpetual data room” available for auditors, lenders, investors, acquirers, partners, and tax preparers.

CANNABIS TAILORED COST ACCOUNTING WORKPAPERS

Our chart of accounts are tailored to the needs of various cannabis entities including chemical/extract, grow, and dispensary so that you can easily do correct cost accounting each month. We provide detailed instructions, examples, videos, templates and actual workpapers, to acquire the operating data needed each month in order to perform correct cost accounting.

TAX RETURN COST ALLOCATION WORKPAPERS


These are the end of the year allocation workpapers that you use to make your transition from GAAP to Tax Accounts, including allocations between cannabis and non-cannabis divisions and ties directly to tax return cost of goods sold schedules (COGS).

While you are providing TONS of value making sure your client’s accounting practices are following IRS and state license rules, the value that you are providing to the CEO is EXTREMELYimportant.

On top of all this...

we provide client “value-add” documents that give your client so much more and really separates DOPE ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONALS from the pack.

With these documents, you will be empowering CEOs with critical information that will help them better understand how to make educated decisions about their business.  You will be able to show them how your are saving them money… so much so, that your fees can be absorbed in the money that they are saving.

These documents (and instruction) include:

  • Consolidated financials
  • Rolling cash forecast
  • CEO specific dashboards and scorecards

...and so much more.

So, who should sign up for the Cannabis Accounting program?


This program is for...

  • People who want to GROW their accounting practice without having to spend a fortune on fancy marketing campaigns
  • Accounting professionals who are PASSIONATE about what they do, but hate the long hours, low pay, and the fact that CEOs don’t understand their value
  • Bookkeepers and accountants that are sick of negotiating higher rates with clients that don’t want to pay
  • Professionals who are ready to WORK REMOTE and PAPERLESS with their clients
  • Those that are sick of long hours and having to sacrifice time with family in order to do what they love
  • People who are ready and willing to do the work, and make the effort to dive feet first in this industry, knowing how important their role is in helping cannabis CEOs

This program is NOT FOR...

  • People who are not interested in working with businesses in the cannabis space
  • Accounting professionals that want us to do the work for them
  • Professionals not looking to build their clientele
  • Accountants who know everything, and aren’t willing to collaborate and learn new methods and standards of operating
  • People who want to take shortcuts and are not committed to providing WORLD CLASS SERVICE. The program is an end-to-end solution that gives CEOs the insights that are REQUIRED and that they NEED in order to properly run their business
  • People who are just looking for another job opportunity and are fine being told what they are worth by an employer
  • People who are looking to get rich quick.
