Business 101 for Cannabis Companies — So, you’ve got your business license, now what?
Getting a cannabis license means putting in countless hours to ensure compliance…and incredible amounts of patience since the licensing process alone takes a year. As a result many cannabis business owners focus so heavily on licensing that they don’t know much about what it takes to run a successful cannabis business or that their deposits also include sales tax and tax liabilities.
Protecting Your Cannabis Profits Through Solid Financial Practices
The cannabis industry is taking off and expected to contribute $91 billion to the U.S. economy this year alone. As a cannabis business owner, you’re ready to get in on that action, but what are the practices you’ll need to put in place to protect your profit? Although accounting services may feel like an expense because they don’t generate profit for you, they can ultimately protect your profit and add value to your business by helping you understand the story behind the numbers.
What does 280E really mean for your cannabis business?
Cannabis business owners know that they need to be 280E compliant, but they don’t always know how 280E compliance translates into higher level business practices. Monique will help you understand how to:
- Categorize your expenses
- Strategically manage your risk

Why Outsourcing Your Accounting Team Saves You BIG
“As an entrepreneur, my time is limited because I focus on so many different things. I came to Automated Accounting Services because I was spending way too much time on day-to-day bookkeeping and accounting responsibilities, and was afraid of doing things that may not be compliant. Monique and her team took most of the day-to-day tasks off my hands and built systems to help simplify what was left in my court. They’re lovely people, great to work with, and gave me back a significant amount of time, which is worth every penny.”
