iiBV 201 – International Business Valuations Standards & Ethics

The IVSC regularly issues updates and revisions to international valuation standards (IVS). These revisions have important consequences for all professional business valuers, impacting the scope of their work and the content of their reports.

iiBV 201 is offered, as either a 1-day in-class course or an online self-study course, to help professional valuers understand and implement IVS in their client work.

The course leads the participants through the IVSC International Valuation Standards, and applies the standards to a comprehensive case-study of a complex international valuation assignment, following the logical steps of an actual business valuation engagement.

iiBV 201 course materials include presentation slides, a student manual, a case study, and an exam.

The in-class format provides a peer-to-peer learning experience, facilitated by an experienced iiBV instructor, while the online course provides a time-effective self-study video format under the guidance of John Barton CPA, ASA.

Participants who complete the course will be able to:

  • Describe the role of international valuation standards and a code of ethical principles in the context of global harmonization;
  • Apply the IVSC’s IVS and ethical principles in their professional work and reports;
  • Articulate the bridge issues between established requirements and the new international valuation standards;
  • Lead their practice and clients in the evolution of international valuation standards.

NEW! iiBV is now offering an update to the iiBV 201 Standards and Ethics according to the IVSC’s 2020 revisions to IVS.

It is a one-hour video also under the guidance of John Barton, who explains the relevant revision of the IVS 2020 standards you must learn.

Stay tuned: iiBV is preparing a new update to the iiBV 201 Standards and Ethics according to the IVS 2022 that will be available in November 2021.
