Withum’s Valuation Services Group

Our services include appraisals of entire businesses, subsidiaries, joint ventures, equity interests, and specific assets such as stock, intellectual property, machinery and equipment, inventory, real estate, and financial instruments.

Familiarity with Regulatory Requirements

Withum has extensive experience working within the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) framework, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), various court jurisdictions, and comparable regulatory bodies in other countries. Specific to FASB, Withum is experienced in FASB ASC Topic 805, Business Combinations and FASB ASC Topic 350, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other. A significant focus of valuation work includes the application and implementation of these acquisition accounting and goodwill impairment requirements.

Withum’s team also provides business valuation reports in conjunction with the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 7(a) loan program. Based on our in-depth knowledge of fair value measurement concepts, we understand how these requirements for financial reporting purposes may differ from valuations for tax purposes.
