A 409A valuation is an appraisal of the fair market value of your company’s common stock. While it’s easy to identify the price of publicly traded stock, private companies need an independent valuation to determine their stock’s worth, so that they value stock correctly when offering options to employees. Equally important, not obtaining a 409A valuation comes with steep IRS penalties and the possibility of an IRS audit. To be compliant with IRS Section 409A, from which the valuation gets its name, you must obtain a valuation report every 12 months and anytime your company closes a new round of funding.
