April 4, 2012

It’s springtime in most parts of the country, which heralds the end of the busy tax time and the beginning of an equally productive BV conference season. The American Society of Appraisers (ASA) is kicking off the season on both coasts, with three meetings by various chapters in May, to wit:

  • On May 7th, the ASA and its NYC Chapter hosts the 20th anniversary of the Current Topics in Business Valuation, to be held in New York City. Sessions will cover effective tactics related to IRS Audits, selecting the optimum capital structure for a subject firm, navigating the WACC vs. the IRR in business combinations, and an analysis of quantitative DLOM models outputs.

  • On Tuesday May 15th, the national ASA hosts its 7th Annual Fair Value Conference, to be held at the local Los Angeles offices of PricewaterhouseCoopers. The roster of speakers includes nationally recognized experts such as Ben Couch (FASB), Tony Aaron (Ernst & Young), and Jon Isler and Adam Smith (both from PwC).

  • On Thursday May 17th, the L.A. Chapter of the ASA hosts the U.S. Tax Court Cases Symposium, a multi-disciplinary event to be held in Cerritos, Calif. Offering “the inside scoop” on what goes on inside the federal Tax Court, the event will feature speakers from the IRS as well as appraisal experts Dennis Webb (Primus Valuation) and Carsten Hoffman (FMV Opinions) and attorney Chuck Morris (Albrecht & Barney).
