Business valuations require a significant amount of careful consideration and judgment. Our expert authors, Mr. Jay Fishman, Dr. Shannon Pratt, and Mr. James Hitchner, give you practical guidance to take you through each step of a valuation engagement and keep you current on valuation issues in PPC's Guide to Business Valuations.  Our checklists and illustrations reflect the guidance from SSVS No. 1 as well as the standards of the other business valuation organizations. You can use the same material the IRS uses to train its agents.


Our checklists, practice aids, and illustrations reflect the guidance from SSVS No. 1 as well as the standards of the other business valuation organizations. The Guide allows you to:

  • Access updated guidance and practical suggestions covering many facets of business valuation.
  • Use our case study to follow the valuation process from the pre-engagement process to the final valuation report. It illustrates the latest approaches and methods for each step of the valuation process.
  • Obtain a current analysis of the national economy that you may include in your valuation reports - a value of over $100 if purchased separately.

This Guide is crucial to your practice to help you comply with the relevant professional standards.
