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 knowledge that we combine to deliver industry tailored solutions. Cooperative focus areas:

  • 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)

We differentiate ourselves not only on our technical know-how, but also by our ability to proactively and strategically apply our knowledge to the benefit of your 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.

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