Annual New Year BV Update

The NEW Concepts, Data, Models, and Methods from 2020 

That You Need to Know and Understand

Are you way behind in your reading?  

Is your new year’s resolution to review that stack of publications on your desk?  

Are you still unsure about valuation issues during Covid? 

This webinar will help you keep that resolution, clear that clutter, and update you on COVID valuations. We will present what we believe to be some of the most important pieces of BV information from 2020. This will include only NEW concepts, data, models, and methods in such areas as the income approach, cost of capital, S corps, the TCJA after three years, control premiums, BV standards, calculations, and expert testimony.
