S-Corp Election (IRC 1374)

Achieve effective corporate tax planning and stay compliant with tax rules.

A corporation making an S-corp election needs a valuation to determine the built-in gains - the appreciation in asset value from the period of time when the entity was a regular C-Corp - as of the date of S-Corp election. This prevents C-Corp entities from saving taxes by converting into S-Corps just before the sale of business or appreciated assets.

If such a converted firm sells or otherwise disposes of a business asset whose value includes part of the built-in gains determined at such S election date within 10 years from the S status election date, it will be liable to pay tax on such gains at the highest corporate income tax rates.

Ever-changing tax regulations demand thorough understanding of several complex tax codes and knowledge of professional valuation standards. With increasing scrutiny by regulatory bodies, an independent valuation becomes important.

Aranca’s thorough and clearly documented appraisal reports provide clients with defensible valuation opinion in case of a potential IRS challenge at a later date.

"We have had a few valuations done by Aranca. [There were] absolutely no problems with the reports; we have a very complicated cap structure and have filed an S-1. The SEC has reviewed and blessed the results and the supporting report. These were done expertly and at a very competitive price."

Partner, Legal Counsel Firm

"We were looking to accurately and effectively assess and evaluate our IP portfolio to commercialize our assets better or raise funds. We needed experts who understood technical aspects of the patents to determine value with respect to the competitive landscape, and also be able to translate it into a comprehensive but easy to understand financial analysis for potential investors and third-parties. That’s why, we chose Aranca because of its blend of strong Intellectual Property research and valuation capabilities.

The Aranca team was extremely professional, thorough and collaborative while working with our in-house team. We were kept in complete sync during the project engagement, as Aranca conducted the technology strength assessment and built a comprehensive valuation report with detailed market analysis and financial forecasts. To our delight, the team went the extra mile to handle our project deftly, and ensured our needs were completely met. We would score Aranca an ’11 out of 10’ for this project."
