As summer ends and fall begins, BVR has a strong lineup of CPE events.

On Friday, September 20, the second installment of BVR’s Advanced Webinar Series on Business Valuation in Divorce features series curator James Alerding (Alerding Consulting) in Goodwill in Divorce Valuation: Personal, Entity, and the Difference Between. Join Alerding as he leads attendees through the tools and analysis required to value and apportion the most common and contentious intangible asset.

Then, on Friday, September 27, the series continues with Reasonable Compensation in Marital Dissolution, featuring James Ewart (Dixon Hughes Goodman). This webinar will address the dissection and assessment of officer compensation, the most subjective and discretionary expense for many owner-operator businesses, whose complexity is only exacerbated in marital dissolution settings.

Valuing Dialysis Clinics, Part 9 of BVR’s Online Symposium on Healthcare Valuation, takes place on September 24 and features James Lloyd (Pershing Yoakley & Associates). Attendees will learn how a difficult mix of factors, including payment schemes, patient mix, and geography, affect the value and valuations of these common, yet complex, healthcare entities.

In the hour-long webinar IP Valuations for Licensed Property Acquisitions, experts Weston Anson and Jeff Anderson (both Consor) join licensing expert Ira Mayer (EPM Communications) to explore the methodologies available when valuing licensed properties for acquisition or sale. As Anson, Anderson, and Mayer will show in their September 25 presentation, the rise in businesses seeking to exploit “pure” licensing business models means both more opportunity and more risk for the valuation of these intangible properties.

In the Advanced Workshop on Estate & Gift Valuations for the IRS, expert appraiser and former IRS territory manager Michael Gregory (Michael Gregory Consulting) joins BVR on October 10 for a thorough examination of how the IRS views many of the most contentious issues in estate and gift valuations. From the structure of the IRS and its appeals and review processes to how the IRS views S-corporation and FLP valuations and discounts for lack of marketability and control, this intensive, four-hour presentation will provide attendees with unprecedented insights into how to prepare valuations for the IRS.
