  • PICPA Scores Three-in-One Legislative Victory
    • PICPA-supported Act 10 of 2021, which was signed into law on April 22, 2021, made three important improvements: changes the corporate tax due date to the 15th day of the month following the federal tax due date; addresses the inconsistency with this year’s local tax filing due date; makes a permanent change so that the local tax due date moves automatically when federal and state-level tax entities move their due dates.

    The uncertain economic environment during the COVID-19 pandemic has called into question many of the inputs historically used by business valuation practitioners. The pandemic has enhanced the focus on risks associated with cash flow realization, factors affecting cost of capital (discount rate), and growth. The legwork for identifying the “known or knowable” as of the valuation date has increased as more sources of information, aggregate views, and sensitivity analysis may be required to arrive at an unbiased conclusion.
