Valuation and Reporting Guidelines

Valuation Guidelines

The Valuation 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. A revised version of the IPEV Guidelines was subsequently released in December 2012.

AVCAL asks each of its Investor Members to apply these Guidelines when reporting valuations to Investors.
