Published on: 05/26/2021 By: Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn

Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn’s podcast features Chuck Faunce, Director of Business Valuation & Litigation Support who explains why it’s important for business owners to know the difference between investment and fair market value and how this knowledge can impact a business’s future success.

The “investment value” and “fair market value” standards can yield different results, making it critical for business owners to know which standard is applicable under what circumstances.

Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn’s Chuck Faunce, Director of Business Valuation & Litigation Support, explains the five areas where these standards of value employ different assumptions about:

  • the parties to the transaction
  • the terms of the transaction
  • whether the transaction is voluntary or compulsory
  • the marketplace for the transaction and
  • the parties’ knowledge of relevant facts

Learn about how these different assumptions lead to different results, when each standard of value is used, and more.
