SRA Competency B


The course explains the situations in which intangible assets, goodwill or intellectual property valuations may be required together with the sources of guidance and practical valuation techniques available. It focuses on the relief-from-royalty and multi-period excess earnings methods.

To illustrate these methods, the afternoon is devoted to a full excel case study that participants work through on how to apply these methods in the context of performing intangible asset valuations for financial reporting purposes under either UK GAAP, FRS 102, or International Financial Reporting Standards, IFRS.

The morning session covers more general topics such as valuation guidance from the International Valuation Standards Council, IVSC, and other sources, together with a qualitative understanding of the different valuation approaches and methods available, and the topics and details that would be expected to be covered in a valuation report.

Delegates will need to bring a laptop with Excel software for the afternoon case study.
