Valuation Guidelines released by the International Private Equity & Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines (IPEV) were adopted by AVCAL on 1 January 2006. These Guidelines have the support of most National PE & VC Associations globally. The Guidelines are based on the concept of fair market value, as opposed to historical cost. There is no substantive difference between these International Guidelines and the pre-existing AVCAL fair market value Guidelines. AVCAL asks each of its Investor Members to apply these Guidelines when reporting to Investors.

Reporting Guidelines were adopted by the AVCAL Council on 17 June 2004 with all members required to use them from 1 January 2005.
