Financial Reporting and Tax Valuation Services

Charting your course

As standards evolve, accounting and tax officials are casting a watchful eye on corporate dealings—especially on the valuation of intangible assets. How can Deloitte help your organization confidently navigate these ever-changing standards?

Financial Reporting Valuation Services

The financial reporting environment is evolving rapidly. And Deloitte is committed to helping our clients stay at the leading edge of these developments to weather both the implications and the opportunities. With auditors and regulatory institutions focusing on your accounting, it’s essential for companies to develop fair value estimates using objective data points, particularly market-based ones.

Understanding the dimensions of a proposed transaction early in the process and supporting the valuation and accounting treatments applied to it can help organizations effectively comply with current fair value standards. And going forward, we can help ongoing asset impairment testing.

Our professionals can assist in estimating the fair value of underlying assets in relation to purchasing price and help management set an appropriate basis for financial or other reporting purposes.

Our Financial Reporting Valuation Services include:
  • Business combinations
  • Impairment of assets
  • Financial instruments
  • Portfolio valuations

Financial reporting case studies

Financial services institution
Assisted management of a regional bank with an ASC 805 analysis related to an FDIC-assisted bank transaction. We estimated the fair value of the acquired loan portfolio (which totaled approximately $2.3 billion), loss share indemnification asset, and unfunded commitments. As part of the loan analysis, we developed credit estimates for substandard and non-accruing commercial real estate and construction loans. We also estimated the fair value of select REO properties with market values greater than $2 million.

Technology company
Engaged by a multinational computer technology company to complete a valuation analysis in connection with its acquisition of a large computer storage and virtualization company. Deloitte’s intangible asset, personal property, and real property valuation teams worked together to perform the appraisal, which included complex tech-related assets such as developed technology, in-process R&D, and patents. The real and property assets were located in facilities in 76 countries.

Tax valuation case studies

Telecommunications company
Engaged by a US-based incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) to value their network and non-network assets for state sales and use tax and federal income tax planning purposes. The company had multiple wholly owned subsidiaries that own assets leased to other entities within the company. The company was considering a transaction whereby the leasing entities planned to sell the assets to the various operating entities.

Deloitte identified a list of specific strategic benefits derived by the client due to FSS agreements and quantified the ones the client deemed material.
