Tax & Financial

Tax and Financial Accounting

Having spent 10 years collectively inside a Big 4 business valuation practice the principals of AMC refined the art of real estate valuations in support of the business valuation process. Since 1990 the principals of AMC have participated in over 350 real estate valuations in support of the business valuation process for a host of Tax and Financial Advisory Firms. The bulk of this work was in the area of allocation of purchase price (ASC 805) with domestic and international coverage.

Through the use of elegant financial models the AMC team has consistently provided valuations that are highly credible (via multiple valuation methods) and very cost effective.

Our understanding of the subtle, yet significant, difference between market value and going-concern value can account for millions of dollars in allocation. Furthermore, working with and understanding the challenges the Business Valuation team encounters allows us to accurately reflect the value impact of sub-optimal business units on specific real estate assets.

The following are just some of the notable engagements AMC participated in:

7-Eleven – Teamed with a leading Business Advisory firm for Japanese Tax Filing purposes to provide valuations for over 6,000 convenience stores in North America, both leased and owned, and with/without gas stations.  Our methodology allowed for individual valuations of each component - land (were applicable), building and site improvement - for all 6,000+ properties.
