To provide assurance that business valuation service providers are experienced, tested and certified, the AICPA has developed the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) Credential for CPAs. Those who earn the ABV Credential must:
• Be a member in good standing of the AICPA
• Hold a valid CPA certificate or license
• Demonstrate experience in business valuation
• Pass a rigorous business valuation exam
• Demonstrate a history of continuing education
To maintain the ABV Credential, a CPA must meet the requirements for recertification every three years. These include submitting evidence of continuing substantial involvement in the discipline and completing related Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses. The ABV Credential certifies that you are working with a certified valuation professional – a CPA who brings added value to a valuation engagement. CPA/ABVs combine a sophisticated understanding of accounting, taxation, financial statement analysis and business operations in many different industries with proven competence in business valuation. Thanks to those core competencies, ABVs have an advantage when it comes to meeting clients’ valuation needs. When you need reliable, impartial advice, give yourself the advantage of working with a CPA/ABV and get valuation services you can bank on.
