BV202 was designed to build upon the learning outcomes achieved in BV 201 by adding the income approach to the student's skill set/ toolbox. This course places heavy emphasis on the three key variables of a valuation (regardless of whether the valuation is concerning fair value for financial reporting, fair market value for litigation or tax-related valuations):
- Benefit Streams;
- Risks (i.e., discount rate); and
Students will be provided with the core concepts necessary for them to immediately apply the income approach without regard to the specific standard of value or purpose for the valuation.
Methods include narrated instructional modules, class assignments/exercises and practice tests.
BV202 is one of four Principles of Valuation (POV) courses required for those seeking a credential with ASA. In addition, this course is also of interest to accountants, attorneys, business brokers, investment bankers, Internal Revenue Service staff and the appraisal community at large who are involved or interested in the valuation of businesses.
