Valuation Fundamentals and Analysis

Sponsored By:  

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 business valuations. In this program, we will provide participants with a review of valuation methodologies used by appraisers when estimating the value of private businesses or assets. 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, business valuations.
