Rohnert Park, CA (June 8, 2015) – Sonoma State University’s Wine Business Institute will offer two new seminars during their week-long Summer Seminar Intensive, June 22nd – 26th. The new seminars, Vineyard Taxation and Winery Taxation, will replace a previous seminar that combined taxation basics for wineries and vineyards in one session and will take a deeper look at various taxation principals and best practices as they relate specifically to vineyards and wineries, in two separate 4 hour sessions.
The two seminars will be presented by a team of Senior Managers from Moss Adams LLP who specialize in taxation for vineyards and wineries. The Vineyard Taxation seminar will cover tax accounting for vineyards from the development phase through production as well as many of the special farming provisions, tax elections and vineyard depreciation methods. The Winery Taxation seminar will cover various tax strategies for inventory costing, selection of accounting methods, depreciation and other unique taxation rules and planning opportunities available to winery owners and management teams.
Both are elective seminars that can be combined with core seminars to earn the Wine Industry Finance & Accounting Certificate or the Direct to Consumer Certificate and can be used to earn Continuing Education Units for CPA licensure.
