Business Valuations & Asset Valuation

Our finance and accounting expertise, combined with our use and development of sophisticated valuation methodologies, fulfills even the most complex financial reporting and tax requirements for business valuations.

Why Us

An Objective and Independent Assessment of Value

We constantly monitor changing regulations from the Financial Accounting Standards Board as they develop implementation guidance and new financial reporting rules with company valuation implications. Armanino performs tax valuations and related consulting in accordance with the regulations and guidance established by the Internal Revenue Service and other taxing authorities.

Armanino's specialty is valuing technology businesses and technology-centric assets. To determine startup valuations, our professionals analyze each client’s business and financial plans, history, projections, and comparable companies and transactions. We have been engaged by more than 1,000 clients to value securities and assets for tax, financial reporting, business combinations and litigation purposes. Our business valuation opinions are fully defensible and documented to withstand scrutiny from the IRS, SEC, financial auditors or other regulatory bodies.
