CPAs and Cannabis

Regarding CPAs who have client relationships, or who work as employees with or for, cannabis related businesses:

The Board will not initiate disciplinary action against CPAs that are compliant with our state’s self- imposed regulatory framework and remain free of other financially related violations of federal or state law.

That being said, the Board cannot provide an assessment of the spectrum of risks that CPAs potentially face if they choose to engage with clients who are involved in the cannabis industry.  Licensees are advised to seek their own legal counsel.

If you have any questions, please contact the Executive Director, Charles Satterlund, CPA, at charles.satterlund@acb.wa.gov.
