Business Valuation Part 3: FAS 157 - Myths & Realities

When evaluating the worth of a company, many factors can lead accountants to either greatly inflate or greatly devalue the price. Often, company stakeholders may try to sway an accountant one way or the other. As recent history has shown, faulty evaluations can be disastrous for the evaluated company, the accountant’s company, and even the economy as a whole. This on-demand web seminar uses true-to-life scenarios to take learners through each part of an evaluation, introducing the many pitfalls. Very importantly, the program will show learners how to avoid these pitfalls so they can produce the most accurate evaluation possible.
