Overview training on valuing a cannabis business.
The general principles of valuing enterprises also apply to a cannabis company. There are caveats to valuing a cannabis business, such as regulatory and tax attributes of the industry that considerably complicates the valuation of a cannabis-related enterprise. This course discusses unique valuation considerations for cannabis-related appraisals. Expanding upon this principle, the business advisor must be prepared to wear multiple hats, whether it is purely tax, accounting, or valuation; business owners now expect counsel on how to improve the business enterprise’s performances by shaving costs, improving revenues, minimization of tax, and increasing company value. This course also explains the unique principles of this fast–rising industry, which will include mandatory “annual” valuations that will be required, due to tax implications.
