One of the most challenging issues during a divorce is the valuation of marital property for distribution. SVA professionals remain independent and objective during the valuation engagement and are bound by the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, requiring our experts to be impartial, honest and free from any conflicts of interest.
SVA takes the time to thoroughly understand each case in order to prepare detailed documentation. This allows our experts to confidently present complex financial matters in a clear and logical manner inside or outside of a court of law. We can prove to be a valuable asset especially when one spouse is determined to conceal certain assets or incomes that could change the outcome of the divorce proceeding if left uncovered.
A shareholder has the right to dissent to certain actions taken by a company or practice, when the shareholder believes the proposed action of the company will adversely affect him or her. If the shareholder decides to dissent to the corporate action, then the shareholder’s remedy is usually limited to receiving payment for the fair value of his or her shares.
SVA valuation experts can navigate the nuances of what is fair value, what is fair market value and what is investment value. Our team can clearly define the appropriate standard of value and apply it properly. At the same time, our valuation experts take into consideration the statutes and case law in the relevant jurisdiction when making their determination.
