Parsippany, NJ – Eric J. Barr, CPA/ABV/CFF, CVA, CFE, co-managing member Fischer Barr & Wissinger LLC, and director of the firm’s Business Valuation and Litigation Support Department lead a seminar for The Consultants’ Training Institute (CTI) – a national affiliation of The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) which supports the users of business and intangible asset valuation services and financial forensic services, including damages determinations of all kinds and fraud detection and prevention. Mr. Barr is a long-time member of NACVA.
The seminar “Pass-Through Entities and the Modified Delaware MRI Model - A New Solution to an Old Problem,” discussed that in pass-through entities the valuation community has perhaps its oldest, least resolved, and, some would say, most poorly defined set of challenges. Despite academic studies, exhaustive professional thought, and judicial opinion, there is still a lack of consensus in this critical area of business appraisal. Yet, in the face of these challenges new work continues to push for a solution to the conundrum of pass-through entities. Eric Barr presented new thinking on pass-through entity valuation and how the appraisal community can best overcome the long-standing barriers to consensus.
The Consultants’ Training Institute (CTI) is comprised of leading experts in the fields of business valuation, litigation consulting, financial forensics, and a variety of other business consulting disciplines. As a widely respected professional training organization, the CTI combines hundreds of years of practitioner experience with academic insights to produce benchmark training and certification programs in the consulting industry’s hottest growth niches.
