Cannabis Accounting & Budgeting 101
INTRO TO CANNABIS ACCOUNTING & BUDGETING
Cannabis businesses faces the same accounting and budgeting challenges that all small businesses face, plus they have to deal with very restrictive federal tax treatment and an incredibly uncertain market.
That is why The Cannabis Alliance is hosting a free, one-hour seminar to help you not only understand the best practices for complying with the federal tax code, but to also learn the basic techniques to analyze the financial performance of your business during these turbulent times.
Todd Arkley and Vito Perillo will lead an engaging back-and-forth discussion on these topics and more! If you are a producer/processor, a retailer, or even an ancillary business, you will find this presentation educational, enlightening, and relevant. We hope to see you there!
WHO CAN ATTEND
Any current members of The Cannabis Alliance and members of the general public.
Friday, September 16th from 3:00pm-4:00pm at the Douglass-Truth Library, a branch of the Seattle Public Library, located at 2300 E. Yesler Way, Seattle, WA, 98122
Free for Alliance members!
This event is not sponsored by The Seattle Public Library.
