Today’s global environment has elevated the importance of valuations that support financial reporting, tax planning, litigation, and mergers and acquisitions.
Your adviser should be fluent with the proper regulations, be able to apply this knowledge across multiple industries, and have a strong reputation for independence and integrity in the community. Withum’s valuation professionals hold advanced degrees in accounting, business, tax, or finance. Many are certified valuation analysts (CVA), accredited business valuators (ABV), and certified public accountants (CPA). Our team members have made significant progress towards or obtained Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) or American Society of Appraisers (ASA) designations. This team draws from Withum’s extensive experience in accounting, tax, and advisory services along with broad industry knowledge.
Withum has the regional coverage, experience, and trusted name you can rely on to help you meet your valuation needs. Our teams include need-based professionals with familiarity of regional market conditions who can consider local issues such as taxes and market regulations.
We recognize that a valuation is not a simple numbers exercise. Instead, we combine our technical skills and practical experience to provide objective advice that aligns with your business goals. We work to understand your business dynamics, as well as sector and value drivers to provide service that goes beyond borders.
Withum’s Valuation Services Group can help you address your valuation requirements with greater efficiency and confidence. 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.
Withum has extensive experience working with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), principal court jurisdictions, and comparable regulatory bodies in other countries. Our broad experience can help you better understand how these regulatory authorities could potentially view your positions on valuation issues. Since the introduction of FASB ASC Topic 805, Business Combinations and FASB ASC Topic 350, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, a significant focus of valuation work has been on the application and implementation of these acquisition accounting and goodwill impairment requirements. 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.
