Outsourced Accounting Services

Bridge West’s Cannabis Accounting Services Group will provide your cannabis business with customized services, whether you’re a startup with limited resources and no accounting and bookkeeping staff, or an established cannabis business with an internal accounting team.  Since 2009, we’ve worked with cannabis cultivators, processors, transporters, dispensaries, management, and intellectual companies.

Let our cannabis accounting services group guide your cannabis organization through the accounting issues.  Through our in-depth knowledge of the cannabis industry we have developed standard chart of accounts, methods to minimize 280E, properly account for inventory, and develop Key Performance Indicators.  Our cannabis group has the expertise and resources to meet your specific needs.

As your cannabis organization grows and evolves, our flexible services evolve with you. For example, if you’ve reached the point where it would be beneficial to have an in-house accounting staff, we can seamlessly transfer the day-to-day responsibilities to your team and provide more advanced Controller or CFO consulting services.

Below is a summary of the services we can provide on a monthly basis.
