Hold a valid and unrevoked CPA certificate or license issued by a legally constituted state authority. 3. Pass the ABV Examination and meet minimum business experience and education requirements. The business experience and education requirements must have been completed within five years of applying for the ABV credential. 4. Complete the ABV credential application and pay the respective credential fee of $360*. 5. Sign a Declaration of Intent to comply with the ABV recertification requirements. *Credential fees may vary based upon current level of membership. THE EXAMINATION REQUIREMENT There are two ways to satisfy the examination requirement: 1. Pass the 6-hour ABV Examination; or 2. Hold the ASA or AM credential awarded by the American Society of Appraisers For more information about the AICPA s ABV Examination, including exam fees, the registration and scheduling process, the Content Specification Outline (CSO), exam preparation and receiving exam results, please visit aicpa.org/abvexam. Have questions? Call or submit an to THE BUSINESS EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT There typically are three venues through which an ABV credential candidate may successfully obtain business experience: Via the public accounting and/or consulting arena Via the business and industry field Via academia 1. Public Accounting and/or Consulting: A credential candidate will successfully complete the requirement by obtaining at least 150 hours of experience or completing six business valuation engagements where the valuation analyst demonstrated competence to make an assessment of appropriateness regarding the choices of approaches and methods, an assessment on inputs to models, and an assessment of the reasonableness and appropriateness of the conclusion of the valuation while using professional judgment. This experience must have been obtained within the five-year period preceding the date of the credential application. Examples of this type of experience include, but are not limited to: Employees in or proprietors of a public accounting firm Employees of a consulting firm that is not a public accounting firm Auditors for Fair Value for Financial Reporting: Auditors completing reviews of fair value for purposes of financial reporting whereby the auditor performs tasks consisting of recalculation of the discount rates, capitalization rates, and verifying models on calculations of value using professional judgment APPLICATION KIT: A GUIDE TO THE AICPA ACCREDITED IN BUSINESS VALUATION CREDENTIAL 4

7 2. Business & Industry: A credential candidate will successfully complete the requirement by obtaining at least 150 hours of business valuation experience. The valuation analyst must demonstrate competence to make an assessment of appropriateness of the choices of approaches and methods, an assessment on inputs to models, and an assessment of the reasonableness and appropriateness of the conclusion of the valuation while using professional judgment. This experience must have been obtained within the five-year period preceding the date of the credential application. Examples of this type of experience include, but are not limited to: Employees working in a private equity group, investment bank or venture capital firm Employees working in a company s corporate development (i.e., M&A) department Employees performing analytical work in any merger, acquisition or deal-making setting Employees working for a research or publishing entity performing merger, acquisition or similar work 3. Academia: A credential candidate will successfully complete the requirement by demonstrating competence to serve as an instructor who has taught at least four accredited college courses covering at least 50% of the material included in the business valuation body of knowledge indicated in the ABV Exam Content Specification Outline. This experience must have been obtained within the five-year period preceding the date of the credential application. Additionally, while gaining experience to meet ABV credential requirements, one must exhibit professional competence as noted in Paragraph 11 of Statement on Standards of Valuation Services No. 1 ( SSVS1 ). This paragraph reads as follows: The General Standards Rule of the code (ET sec and ) states that a member shall undertake only those professional services that the member or the member s firm can reasonably expect to be completed with professional competence. Performing a valuation engagement with professional competence involves special knowledge and skill. A valuation analyst should possess a level of knowledge of valuation principles and theory and a level of skill in the application of such principles that will enable him or her to identify, gather, and analyze data, consider and apply appropriate valuation approaches and methods, and use professional judgment in developing the estimate of value (whether a single amount or a range). An in-depth discussion of valuation theory and principles, and how and when to apply them, is not within the scope of this statement. Experience gained for the purposes of meeting the ABV credential requirements can be obtained through a variety of engagements or work responsibilities. They include, but are not limited to: Mergers & acquisitions, spin-offs and liquidations Reorganizations and bankruptcies Initial public offerings (IPOs) Damages litigation and ownership disputes Fairness opinions Estate, gift and income tax Ad valorem taxes Insurance claims Marital dissolution Dissenter s rights Eminent domain actions Shareholder oppression cases Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) Financial reporting Charitable contributions Allocation of purchase price Goodwill impairment Buy/sell agreements Family limited partnerships Recapitalizations Financing Business planning Stock option plans Compensation 1 1 List of valuation areas obtained from Understanding Business Valuation, Gary Trugman, 3rd edition, 2008, pg. 3 and Financial Valuation: Applications and Models, James Hitchner, 2nd edition, 2006, pg. 2.

12 Additional Information For more information about the ABV credential program, contact the AICPA. Call: ABV Member Service at (M F 9am 6pm ET) Write: AICPA ABV credential American Institute of CPAs 220 Leigh Farm Road Durham, NC ATTN: Member Service Visit: aicpa.org/abv Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the ABV Credential Q. How does the ABV credential differ from other valuation credentials? A. The ABV, unlike other valuation credentials, is awarded only to CPAs who are members of the AICPA. Accordingly, this credential represents the highest professional standards of any valuation credential and sets the ABV credential holder apart from other valuation experts. Q. Do I have to be a CPA and a member of the AICPA to qualify? A. Yes. To qualify for the ABV credential, you must be an AICPA member in good standing and hold a valid and unrevoked CPA certificate issued by a state authority. The ABV credential is granted exclusively by the AICPA. Q. How much will it cost to apply for the ABV credential? A. Once you have met all of the requirements to become an ABV, the standard initial pricing for the ABV credential is $360 unless you qualify for one of the exceptions listed below: If you hold another AICPA credential, then the initial price is $210 (promo code MultiCred) If you are a member of the FVS Section, then you will receive a credit for a pro rata portion of your remaining annual FVS membership fee. (The actual cost will be somewhere between the $360 standard price and $145, depending on the number of months remaining in your annual FVS membership period.) Q. Do I have to take an examination to qualify for the ABV credential? A. There are two ways to satisfy the examination requirement: 1. Pass the ABV (6-hour) Examination 2. Hold the Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) or Accredited Member (AM) credential issued by the American Society of Appraisers Q: Does experience performing valuation services as an employee of a financial services firm that is not an APPLICATION KIT: A GUIDE TO THE AICPA ACCREDITED IN BUSINESS VALUATION CREDENTIAL 10

13 accounting firm (i.e., a consulting firm, litigation support firm, private equity firm, investment bank, etc.) qualify to fulfill the experience requirement? A: Yes, as long as valuation services performed by the analyst meet the definition of valuation services described under the Business Experience Requirement section. Q: Does experience reviewing valuations as an auditor in a CPA firm qualify to fulfill the experience requirement? A: Experience gained by reviewing valuations as an auditor in a CPA firm would qualify toward meeting the 150-hour experience requirement. For the experience to apply, the candidate auditor must use methods as part of the review process whereby the auditor performs recalculation of the discount rates, capitalization rates, and/or verifies models on calculations of value using professional judgment. Q: Does experience performing valuation services as an employee of a reporting entity for the purpose of fair value accounting measurement and disclosure qualify to fulfill the experience requirement? A: Yes, as long as valuation services performed by the analyst meet the definition of valuation services described under the Business Experience Requirement section. Q: Does experience performing valuation services for the purpose of litigation and arbitration (including bankruptcy, commercial litigation, marital dissolution, etc.) qualify to fulfill the experience requirement? A: Yes, as long as valuation services performed by the analyst meet the definition of valuation services described under the Business Experience Requirement section. However, due to the reporting exemption from SSVS1 for controversy proceedings, not all engagements will result in a report that meets SSVS1 reporting standards. Accordingly, the candidate may need to provide additional support that demonstrates work experience in this area under SSVS1. The additional support required, if any, will be determined by the ABV Credential Committee on a case-by-case basis. Q: Does experience performing valuation services as an employee of a private company for the purpose of management planning (including acquisitions, divestitures, investment decisions, investment performance evaluation, etc.) qualify to fulfill the experience requirement? A: Yes. If the work product culminated in the expression of either a conclusion of value or a calculated value and meets the definition of valuation services described under the Business Experience Requirement section, the valuation services qualify to fulfill the experience requirement. Q: Does the analysis and work product of the candidate need to be reviewed by a CPA or CPA/ABV (or equivalent credential holder) in order to qualify to fulfill the experience requirement? A: The work product of a sole practitioner, partner, or someone else in a role that does not require the review of a direct supervisor does not need to be reviewed by another qualified CPA/ABV. The candidate would qualify as long as he/she has successfully completed the required level of experience stated in the Business Experience Requirement section. However, the candidate should be aware that applications are selectively audited to ensure compliance with the ABV credential requirements.
