When conducting a valuation of a small business it is always possible the owner or owner’s representatives might provide false information, either intentionally or unintentionally, in an attempt to influence the valuation number. What are some of the red flags that valuators should be alert to? Not every valuation professional can be an expert on fraud, but it is still necessary to be alert for the red flags that a small business owner might be providing misleading information in order to influence a valuator’s opinion. We will review the standards for properly preparing a small business valuation report. The course will cover the basic items a valuator should be aware of in order to ensure an inaccurate valuation opinion is not provided.
After completing this course, attendees will be able to:
- Identify red flags in a small business valuation
- Identify standards for preparing a small business valuation
