We also perform estate tax valuations for Internal Revenue Service purposes.

Stock Option Valuations:
Business Advisory provides valuations for compliance with IRS Section 409A. The Internal Revenue Service can levy penalties if the option strike price is less than fair market value.

Expert Witness:
Business Advisory’s professionals are qualified expert witnesses having testified in Federal and State courts. Testimony experience includes financial and valuation issues in mergers and acquisitions, corporate & partnership dissolutions, fraudulent conveyance, marital dissolutions, non-compete covenants, dissenting shareholder actions and economic damages.

ESOP Valuations & 401(k) Plans:
Business Advisory serves as the independent financial advisor to trustees of Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) and to selling shareholders in ESOP transactions. We also perform on-going annual valuations of ESOP companies as required by the Department of Labor for filing Form 5500. We also provide valuations for 401(k) plans holding closely held or illiquid securities.

Purchases, Sales, Mergers & Acquisitions:
Business Advisory provides valuation and advisory services in mergers, acquisitions, purchases and sales. Valuations can be for the business enterprise or for fractional interests.
