Accounting and Financial Services for the Equestrian Business
If you own an equestrian business, our Roseville California CPAs help you with your finances. Free consultations.
Are you passionate about horse riding or dressage? Do you frequent horse shows? Do you own horse stables or manage a horse farm? Are you involved in promoting a stallion or racing a thoroughbred? If you answered yes to any of the above – or if you spend any money in the horse world – it might be time to think about the financial side of your passion. You could be missing out on important tax deductions. When you work with an accountant who specializes in financial services and equine accounting in Sacramento, you learn which tax structure brings in the most savings. And since nearly everything equine-related is pricey, hanging on to more of your money is especially important for equestrians. Not only does an equestrian accountant help you plan your taxes sensibly, but with her guidance, you can stop worrying about business details and focus your attention on fun: horse riding, horse property, breeding, training – all the reasons you fell in love with horses in the first place.
