Business Valuation


The AICPA has entered an agreement with the publisher of the Daubert Tracker, an online database of information on the admissibility and effectiveness of expert testimony in judicial proceedings. Under the arrangement, members of the AICPA business valuation and forensic litigation services (BV/FLS) section are eligible for substantially discounted subscriptions to reports on how individual courts and judges have regarded financial testimony. Such insight can better prepare practitioners for courtroom appearances, sharpen their advice to attorneys who have retained them as financial experts, help them anticipate and refute challenges to their own methods and opinions, and stay abreast of the latest financial testimony techniques. More information is available at www.aicpa.org/BVFLS .
