So if your company has no revenue, no proven business model, and virtually no assets, why should you pay someone to tell you what you already know that your stock is worth very little? If your company fits this profile, and you are looking for a free A valuation, check out the Capshare A Calculator. Stock options have a strike price specifying the price at which stock may be purchased if the option is exercised. Most people use the term A compliance to refer to compliance with two sections of IRS law: There is some confusion among entrepreneurs about the difference.
But in both cases, you must issue your stock options at the FMV of your common stock. So what are your options for complying with A? The valuation serves as evidence that you are not arbitrarily setting a ridiculously low strike price on your options, but are indeed setting them equal to the FMV of your common stock. Choosing a A solution is a lot like choosing an insurance product. Your decision depends on your risk tolerance and how much you are willing to spend to decrease your risk.
Safe-harbor is a very important legal term when considering A valuation options. If a valuation qualifies for safe-harbor, then the burden of proof shifts to the IRS. This provides enormous protection when it comes to audit and tax risk. If a valuation is not under safe harbor and the IRS challenges the valuation, then the company must prove to the IRS that their analysis is sound and accurate to avoid penalties. The IRS has recently requested some information from about 50 companies to see if they would like to become more active in A compliance.
Ultimately, we feel that the risk of an audit is very low for a startup company that takes some very basic steps, such as using an online calculator and asking a few financial experts to review the results.
Valuing a private company is notoriously difficult and subjective. We believe it would be difficult for the IRS to definitively prove an incorrect valuation. So they would have to focus on a lack of effort.
We recently published an article that addresses this: The punchline is that A non-compliance could be really painful and you definitely want to avoid it. The cost of these valuations increases as you move from the higher-risk options to the lower-risk options.
Ultimately, you need to decide the likelihood of a challenge by the IRS, and whether or not you would feel comfortable defending your valuation to the IRS. For very early-stage startups, the risk of any IRS involvement is low. If you do, a free A could be a great option for you—especially if you want to trade a bit more risk to save a couple thousand dollars.
