Intangible Asset Valuation

Intangible Asset Valuation

What intangible assets have you developed or acquired? Have you acquired a business with significant intangible value? Do you need assistance with valuing intangible assets for a potential sale or for an allocation of the purchase price in a recent acquisition?

Intangible asset valuations are required for many purposes, including:

  • Financial reporting purposes
  • Purchase Price Allocations (PPA)
  • Asset Impairment Testing (goodwill and other intangible assets)
  • Purchase and sale
  • Tax planning – corporate reorganizations
  • Transfer pricing
