Why You Should Attend:

Since its implementation in January, 2005 IRC 409a has taken on a life of its own.  As Neil Beaton explains in BVR’s Guide to Valuations for IRC 409a Compliance, because of  "exposure to many bright minds and questioning professionals, new techniques and refinements of old ones have surfaced and are now being implemented."  And as the AICPA prepares to release a revisited practice aid on this matter, a new chapter looks to be added to the saga of 409a.

In "Valuation Issues in 409a," Beaton and David Dufendach will discuss this complex regulation's past, present, and future, as well as those all-important details of the methods and applications with which it is associated.

BVR’s Guide to Valuations for IRC 409A Compliance

This Guide, authored by expert Neil J. Beaton, focuses on the nuts and bolts of performing valuation and allocation analyses specifically related to Internal Revenue Code 409A. In these types of valuations, metrics and methodologies differ by the stage of investment and the availability of quantitative and qualitative data.

Understanding and identifying the unique variables required to perform a valuation for an early stage company is critical to a well-supported, and ultimately acceptable, valuation opinion. This Guide aims to help valuation professionals gain an understanding of the principles related to these unique valuations, and will provide readers the foundation they need to perform most of the common 409A valuations over a wide variety of economic conditions.
