Business valuation is a complex process requiring broad knowledge of accounting, finance, and economics, as well as the experience and judgment necessary to properly apply recognized and accepted valuation methodologies. IPFC professionals include CPAs and certified valuation specialists experienced in matters involving business and asset valuation.
IPFC performs business valuations to satisfy requirements arising from a variety of situations, including:
- Purchase price allocations as required under FAS 141(R)
- Impairment studies on goodwill and other intangible assets as required under FAS 142
- Valuation of charitable donations
- Valuation of closely held and restricted stock for family wealth planning & estate tax compliance
- Shareholder disputes
- Business damages
- Buy-sell agreements
- Family law and marital dissolution
- Tax-related matters
- Review of expert reports for potential rebuttal testimony or cross examination purposes
- Fraudulent conveyance issues
Valuations must withstand the intense scrutiny of auditors, regulators, and investors. IPFC professionals have not only the practical experience necessary to perform valuations which hold up to scrutiny, but also the testimony experience necessary to defend their work in federal and state court.
