Financial & Tax Reporting Valuations
We provide objective and independent valuations to help meet complex financial reporting and tax requirements. Our work product is rigorously supported and respected by auditors, investors, and regulators.
BRG professionals provide valuation services to fulfill financial reporting and tax requirements for corporations, funds, and investors in the US and internationally. Our valuation opinions are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), IFRS, IRS, and other regulatory bodies.
Our team members have performed numerous valuations in support of financial reporting and tax requirements and successfully defended valuation methodologies before auditors, the SEC, the IRS, and international tax courts.
Recent years have seen a record-breaking number of restatements, more than half of which may have involved fair value measurement.
BRG valuation professionals have provided input on intangible asset valuations to regulatory authorities. They have access to and regularly use the latest guidance on emerging issues/FASB interpretation on purchase accounting. They typically interact with a company’s internal and outside audit teams throughout each engagement to discuss and agree upon an appropriate valuation framework and methodologies to ensure efficiency and compliance with relevant standards. In addition, they routinely interface with valuation professionals from each major accounting firm, thus facilitating the audit review process and eliminating issues prior to filing.
