Purchase price allocation

Gain unbiased insights for valuing key tangible and intangible assets with RSM’s proven purchase price allocation process

An accurate purchase price valuation ensures you’re getting your money’s worth

Before middle market companies buy or sell an asset, they need to know its exact worth. Otherwise, they could overpay as a buyer or leave money on the table as a seller. But with today’s complex transactions and sophisticated deal structures, not to mention tax and regulatory changes, valuing assets is more difficult—and more important—than ever. The pre-and post-deal effects of asset and liability valuation, including potential tax savings, can have a substantial impact on your company. And without relevant experience and a middle market perspective, acquired assets and assumed liabilities can be overvalued, undervalued, or missed entirely.
