Cannabis Entity Structures

Build A Business Ready for Growth

Choosing your cannabis business’ entity structure is one of those small decisions that will ultimately have a major impact on the future of your business. Choose the right structure and gain tax, cash flow, and operational efficiencies that give you a competitive edge. Choose the wrong structure and you may expose yourself to double taxation and a variety of legal and exit-related complexities down the road.

How do you choose the right cannabis entity structure?

There is no one-size-fits all answer to this question. It ultimately depends on the verticals you operate in, who owns the company, what market you operate in, and perhaps most importantly, what your long-term goals or exit plan is. You have to weigh your near-term needs with your long-term goals. The good news is, as your needs change, you’ll have the option to update or alter your entity structure.
