We understand the nuances and complexities of the cooperative tax structure, patronage and non-patronage income, and the value to its members.

Our experience with cooperatives is enhanced by our deep industry specialization that we combine to deliver industry tailored solutions. We work with cooperatives from across the country.  Whether you are

  • Commercial sales and marketing (agribusiness, food and beverage, biofuels, grocery)
  • Public services (healthcare, housing, education, transportation)
  • Financial services (credit unions, farm credit, insurance)
  • Utilities (rural electric, telephone, water)

You can be assured that you are receiving the best financial solutions based on your industry challenges as a cooperative. We are involved with the National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives (NSAC), the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) and have deep relationships within the cooperative sector.

Each year in May, we host a cooperative roundtable that enables CFOs from cooperatives to share insights, receive updates on regulations and trends, and learn new business solutions that matter to cooperatives. This event is by invitation only. If you would like to join us, please contact us.

If you want a partner that understands your industry, gets to know your business intimately, and offers profitable solutions while minimizing risks as a cooperative, connect with us.
