GreenGrowth's Goal

Here at GreenGrowth CPAs, our goal is to help individuals and companies in the cannabis industry identify and apply tax and business strategies to increase their cash flow while making sure they are in full compliance with all applicable states’ rules and regulations.

People First, Profits Second

Behind the veil of financial reports and documents are people that help businesses operate day in and day out. Our leaders understand that the team we have built is our greatest asset and the most prideful aspect of our organization. We never lose sight that we are here to help people first and build profits second.

Empathy & Understanding

As business owners and operators ourselves, we understand that our clients rely on us to guide them through their toughest financial & business challenges with confidence. We always choose to come from an angle of seeking to understand their needs before being understood, so that clients get what they want and not just what we think they need.

Competence & Continuous Learning

We are the best at what we do, hands down, and aim to prove it every day with the quality of our work product, educational content and the results of our clients. As this industry changes at lightning speed, we spend our time learning and testing new strategies that will be effective for clients to improve the financial health of their business

Simplicity & Clarity

As you know, the world of cannabis tax, finance and compliance is incredibly complicated, so we strive to make everything as simple as possible for our clients. It’s important to us that they focus on running their business and not worrying about forms, filings or other nuances that may cause chaos for their organization.

Trust & Integrity

We are honest, ethical and fair with our clients and partners because we understand that they are trusting us with the most critical aspects of their business. We seek win-win situations by aligning our incentives with those of our clients because when they succeed, so do we.
