International Business Valuation And Equipment Appraisal Join Forces

An Alliance That Will Help To Preserve Public Trust In Financial Reporting Coast-To-Coast And Worldwide

IRVING, Texas, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- NEBB Institute (NEBB) and the International Association of Consultants, Valuators and Analysts (IACVA) are pleased to announce they have forged a strategic alliance. This partnership will produce a united front coast-to-coast and worldwide which will encompass IACVA's business valuation expertise as well as fraud deterrence and forensic accounting and NEBB's machinery and equipment appraisal/brokerage services.

IACVA, founded in 2000 provides worldwide support to professionals who perform valuations (for businesses, securities and intangible assets of all kinds) or are engaged in fraud deterrence. In the field of fraud deterrence and forensic accounting, IACVA encourages development and dissemination of consistent and demonstrable systems and techniques for both detection and prevention of fraud.  NEBB also founded in 2000, provides worldwide training, certifying, and support to professionals who perform Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraisals for lenders, CPAs, attorneys, courts, and business owners.

In its fields, IACVA is the largest accrediting and educational association in the world with more than 10,000 Associate Members. Charter Members currently represent 55 countries. The Charter Member structure gives IACVA a unique ability to transfer knowledge relating to both disciplines among the international valuation and fraud deterrence communities by drawing on the vast wealth of experience and resources each Member brings to the organization.

NEBB is one of the leading machinery and equipment appraisal and brokerage training and certifying organizations of Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisers (CMEA) worldwide.  CMEA's adopt and comply with the regulations and ethics rules of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) as well as other international standards. CMEA's endorse and strive to observe the highest standards of professional ethics to preserve the public trust inherent in the professional appraisal practice.

"The strategic partnership between IACVA and NEBB Institute benefits everyone worldwide because when there is a business valuation, oftentimes the valuation incorporates equipment values. If a professional is not trained on data collection and reporting techniques in addition to specific equipment appraisal methodology that should be applied regarding valuing equipment, the end result may be a skewed business valuation", states John Harris of NEBB Institute.

"IACVA and NEBB together bring a unique ability to transfer knowledge and support relating to business valuation, fraud deterrence, and machinery and equipment appraisal disciplines among the international communities by drawing on the vast wealth of experience, best practices, and resources preserving the public trust", states William A. Hanlin, Jr., President, IACVA.

Both IACVA and NEBB are looking forward to the October 11, 2013 Chicago International Business Valuation Symposium.  Professionals from around the world will be sharing the current best practices in the field of business valuation.  The conference is designed to provide extensive opportunities to network with fellow valuators; M&A deal makers, and business transaction attorneys.
