A first for BV in Africa

NACVA, under the auspices of its international arm, the International Association of Consultants, Valuators and Analysts (IACVA), will be administering a CVA test in Accra, Ghana in November, creating possibly the first instance of BV testing on that continent.   Ghana is a natural location because it adoption IFRS early and many of its accountants have actively reached out for international business valuation training.

Bennet Kpentey (Sync Consult Ltd.) is the current president of the Ghana Charter of IACVA. The examination follows the teaching last month of NACVA’s intangible asset valuation class by Jim Catty (Corporate Valuation Services Ltd.).  Catty, the chair of IACVA, reports that 50 financial professionals attended his session.
