Andrew and Christine have been amazing for our business! I watched our profit margin improve significantly after we had Andrew come in to review our inventory procedures and the cannabis tax knowledge that Christine provided us with is unmatched. 10 out of 10!
I had a non-cannabis accountant prepare my tax return last year and what a difference! The knowledge I received working with Christine was so incredibly specific to our business. We highly recommend working with her industry knowledge if you want peace of mind.
