This book was written to fill a need for a text which will enable the reader/student to learn the principles of valuation. It will help you to meet the demanding requirements of export and import valuation. Customs and Border Protection expect 99% valuation compliance. Bureau of Industry and Security as well as Bureau of Census expect accuracy in export and import valuation. The Bureau of Industry and Security states that over 50% of export declarations are incorrect. This book will help to reduce valuation as a value concern. Valuation is far below the 99% stated to Congress. Under the "reasonable care" requirements of Customs, trained and proficient personnel are expected to provide accuracy of 99%. This book will help attain a higher compliance level and serve as support to your compliance manual.

* Gives clear understanding of the methods and techniques of valuation * Latest statutes and case law affecting valuation * Core text for students and essential reference for practitioners Despite the volatility in the world’s financial and property markets the principles underpinning valuation methods have remained fundamentally unchanged. In this new edition the sections on methods have been revised and updated to provide a comprehensive coverage of both their principles and their application. More significantly new and amended statutes and case law precedents which have affected various aspects of statutory valuations are included. These changes have been incorporated in the revisions to chapters dealing with Commercial Property, Leasehold Enfranchisement, Rating, Compulsory Purchase and other statutory applications. The 10th edition maintains the aims and objectives of all previous editions: to support students with its comprehensive coverage of the legal, economic and technical aspects of valuation required by most University and College Real Estate Programmes and to provide trainees (APC Candidates) and practitioners with current and relevant guidance on the preparation of valuations for statutory purposes.
Research paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Accounting and Taxes, grade: 2,3, University of applied sciences, Munich, course: MBA, language: English, abstract: Every single company is obliged to make a financial statement according to national law, which is the German Commercial Code (HGB) in Germany. This assignment elaborates important clauses for the domain of “recognition and accounting principles”, lodged in the HGB and then critically monitors and analyzes rules, obligations and bans, deduced from these clauses. The author therefore looks into the subject of accounting challenges in general like the actual definition of an asset and the right classification of individual assets: which is already detected as the first “room for accounting flexibility” allowing firms to build up hidden reserves, something being highly criticized from supporters of the Anglo-Saxon approach. Next the major valuation principles and in particular the Prudence Principle with its four occurrences are analyzed, followed by a practical and value oriented overview of the “past, present and future value” approach. Additionally, the author presents a scheme with the logical “computation of acquisition costs” in order to have a valuation basis for the balance sheet. This accounting cost termination is however another “option” enabled through the legal text of § 255 HGB to minimize or maximize profits shown to external parties. The core part then focuses on the accounting differences of certain groups of assets. For theoretical reasons calculation scenarios with corresponding formulas for the depreciation methods are introduced and executed with a practical example, namely the depreciation for a ten year old machine. This simple example proves that the linear method allows the highest profit shown whereas with the declining method the lowest profit is shown. In the last chapter important aspects and challenges, as the deciding role of the correct “amount to be paid” for the subject of accounting of liabilities are analyzed.
The valuation of assets, both tangible and intangible, is an important element of corporate finance. Putting a price tag on ideas is almost impossible, and in the new economy, where companies grow dependent on intangible assets all the time, market volatility can be attributed in large part to our collective ignorance of their value. There are two basic approaches to valuation: from financial statements to cash flows, and from cash flows to financial statements. The former projects historical financial statements into the future and the latter attempts to construct cash flow statements and use them in forecasting future financial statements. Established companies use the first method and start-ups the second. In Principles of Cash Flow Valuation, the authors strive to "close the gap" between these two approaches by presenting the principles of cash flow valuation and cost of capital in a clear and systematic fashion. * Provides the only exclusive treatment of cash flow valuation * Authors use examples and a case study to illustrate ideas * Presentation appropriate for a range of technical backgrounds: ideas are presented clearly, full exposition is also provided * Named among the Top 10 financial engineering titles by Financial Engineering News
