Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we will be hosting live webinars in place of live seminars for the foreseeable future.  We will send an email as soon as live seminars are up and running again.  We appreciate your patience.

For our CPA customers, note that live webinar credits are equivalent to live seminar credits and will satisfy your credit requirements.  

For our attorney customers, individual state legal education requirements will vary. As of now, it appears that the PACLE Board will review attorney compliance on an individual basis if you are unable to find live seminar credits prior to your deadline. If you require more detail, please reach out to the Legal Education Board in your state.

Business Valuation Fundamentals

CPAs and attorneys are often required to provide expert advice pertaining to mergers and acquisitions, ownership disputes, estate, gift, and income taxes, marital dissolution, buy/sell agreements, FLPs, and financial reporting. The quality of this advice, in many cases, is directly linked to the understanding of private business valuations. After taking this course, CPAs and attorneys will have a better understanding of the necessary tools to perform sound due diligence and to successfully complete thorough, defendable, private business valuations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the fundamentals of business valuation and financial analysis
