Fair Value for Financial Reporting
In today's dynamic and volatile markets, whether buying or selling, what corporate officers need to know is the current worth of an asset. Although the FASB has now concluded that fair value is the most relevant measure for financial instruments, determining fair value for investors has become a complex and, at times, confusing task.
Fair Value for Financial Reporting is a nuts-and-bolts book dedicated to equipping corporate financial officers and auditors with the tools to understand fair value and the appraisal process and to become educated buyers of appraisal services. Author Alfred King, valuation authority, clearly shows his experience in this subject, filtering complicated insider concepts into easy-to-understand information on the valuation specialist's function, the many new FASB pronouncements involving fair value, and the accounting and auditing requirements for fair value reporting.
Not designed as a how-to book on performing appraisal, Fair Value for Financial Reporting instead familiarizes financial officers on the ins and outs of fair value financial disclosure, including:
- Preparation of valuations in a manner consistent with GAAP and current SEC interpretations after the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
- Selecting an appraiser
- What corporate executives should expect from their appraisers and valuation specialists
- How appraisers develop fair value and the assumptions they have to make
- How corporate liabilities such as lawsuits and contingent payments are now valued
- How to evaluate an appraisal report
- Valuation of financial instruments
Well written, conversational in tone, and filled with valuable insights, Fair Value for Financial Reporting lifts the veil of confusion from the substantial and growing requirements for fair value disclosures.
