Valuations are critical to many aspects of business - from transactions and financing to litigation, strategic management, and compliance. But they don’t exist in silos. To stay relevant, valuation should reflect the latest accounting, tax, and regulatory codes in addition to the specific requirements of a valuation. Valuation professionals help clients solve complex business and transaction issues, including analyzing alternatives. Providing well-reasoned valuations and advice is only part of the solution. Just as important, valuation professionals understand how to develop valuation estimates in tandem with prevailing accounting, tax, and regulatory codes.
