Masterclass in the Valuation of Family Limited Partnerships and LLCs (eLearning course)

As professional appraisal methodology has advanced, so has the valuation of family limited partnerships (FLPs) and limited liability companies (LLCs). Adopting an analytical method for valuing FLPs and LLCs using the income and market approaches allows appraisers to more accurately and objectively determine a value that can withstand the scrutiny of IRS challenges. Experts Bruce Johnson, Jim Park, and Spencer Jefferies conduct case studies to teach the best practices for valuing noncontrolling, nonmarketable FLP and LLC interests. In addition, an in-depth understanding of the Partnership Profiles marketplace will also be presented and practitioners will understand how to determine discounts for lack of control and lack of marketability for these entities and where to get objective data to support the calculation of value.

Highlights of the course include:

  • Case Study
  • Deep dive into the data with Bruce Johnson, Jim Park, and Spencer Jefferies
  • Case Law Review
