Overview

ACPA who accepts a business valuation engagement in a family law setting embarks on a unique mission. In most states, business valuations linked to divorce proceedings are governed by different laws than those that apply to other valuations, and because the CPA has become an advocate for one side in an adversarial process, the findings of the valuation are sure to be challenged aggressively by representatives of the other side. Since neither business valuation strategies nor expert witness skills are part of the curriculum of any undergraduate accounting program, CPAs have generally had to acquire them through trial—and, unfortunately, error—until now. The Handbook for Divorce Valuations offers practical coverage of every aspect of business valuation in the context of a divorce. From engagement acceptance and administration to divorce-related valuation issues and appearing as an expert witness, this comprehensive guide shows practitioners how to provide the highest level of service in divorce litigation. It helps CPAs: Prepare detailed, comprehensive reports on business valuation engagements Make the most of guidelines—company- and industry-specific information Collect and analyze relevant data Choose the best valuation methodology Prepare for depositions and trials Put forth best effort on direct examination Survive cross-examination Divorce litigants depend on thorough, competent professionals to represent their interests. The Handbook for Divorce Valuations helps practitioners ensure that their clients will receive the very best possible representation.
