Financial reporting compliance requirements are a fact of life. Yet most business owners didn’t set out to be bean counters. There’s an opportunity cost to spending energy on financial reporting. You lose precious time better spent winning customers, leading employees, and fine-tuning your operations.

Getting in GAAP’s Good Graces — The Sofer® Way

A services firm owner found herself in an exciting position. After a long search, she found the perfect investor for her business—one that believed in her vision, had important industry contacts, and could provide the capital needed to reach the next level of success.
But the investor came with a catch—their firm insisted on upgraded financials following GAAP accounting standards.

Not wishing to lose this important opportunity, the owner hired a CPA to audit her books. The CPA identified multiple GAAP departures, including stock option issuances with an arbitrary strike price and a business purchase that was entirely booked to goodwill.

This is when the owner turned to Sofer® Advisors for help.

Our business valuation experts immediately developed solutions to the client’s financial reporting problems. Our valuation offered answers as to how to fix the stock option issues.

Based on the valuation, we then created an opening balance sheet with identified intangibles, including customer relationships, a viable trade name, and technology separate from goodwill. This gave the investor (and all future investors) a more accurate statement of the company’s financial position at the time of the change of control.

Our client moved forward with her financials now in full compliance with GAAP, resulting in a happy investor ready to fuel her growth.

Financial reporting and compliance needn’t distract you from higher value priorities for your time


What sets Sofer® Advisors apart for SMB Valuations?

Is Business Valuation a formal process?

Certified business valuations are a formal process examining every aspect of your company to assess its value. These provide credible, transparent results that lenders, investors, potential buyers, and other stakeholders can trust.

To move forward with a formal or informal valuation, contact us for a free initial consultation. We’ll use this opportunity to assess your unique needs and goals of your valuation, analyze the size and complexity of your operations, determine which report types (certified or informal) are applicable, and determining the deadline timing in order to quote a fixed fee for our valuation services.
