CPAs around the country are being called upon more and more
to provide detailed financial reporting, especially for publicly owned
corporations including banks, REITS, utilities, etc. Financial statements
typically include much quantifiable information, such as the value of cash in
the bank, accounts receivable and notes payable. What they typically do not
include with as much accuracy, is the value of real estate holdings. In the
past, land holdings have been reported at cost while buildings have been
reported at replacement cost new less depreciation. These values can be far
from Market Value or Fair Value. Financial Reporting and Counseling services
offered by experienced real estate evaluation firms can offer accountants help
in updating financial statements which more accurately reflect the true value
of assets owned by a company.
