Venture First brings decades of finance and accounting expertise to support valuations for financial reporting.
Our senior team members regularly participate in best practice forums to ensure the most up to date guidance is incorporated in our valuations. Our work is regularly reviewed by all of the big four pubic accounting firms and many regional and local firms. Our engagement management practices ensure that audit teams, company management and Venture First project leaders agree on the key assumptions and materiality concerns for each assignment.
