Ren Cicalese III Featured in ROI-NJ’s 2023 Cannabis Resource Guide

(Cherry Hill, NJ) Alloy Silverstein Associate Partner Ren Cicalese III, CPA, MST has been featured in ROI-NJ’s 2023 Resource Guide in their Cannabis: Q&A of the March 20, 2023 Edition of ROI-NJ.

Q: What aspect of the cannabis industry does your firm specialize in (compliance, growth, distribution, etc.)?
Ren III: We look at our role as advisory, as this industry has challenges that are different from all other industries. Alloy Silverstein has been working with cannabis businesses in all verticals of the industry, from planting the seed, all the way through retail sales. Having an accounting firm that understands the impact of how you set up your entity, navigating 280E and the challenges of setting up payroll in an industry that has not yet received federal approval will make a big difference in the success of your new business.
