Valuations for Financial Reporting

Meeting your regulatory compliance requirements can be daunting. Many organizations lack the internal resources to implement complex financial reporting standards, never mind staying up to date on new accounting standards and their impact on your business. 

Having a clear fair market value for your business is an essential part of various financial reporting requirements — whether under Canada’s Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE), U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). 

We can help you with determining the fair value of goodwill, investment fund holdings and intangible and tangible assets in accordance with the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada, the Financial Accounting Standards Board and International Financial Reporting Standards.
