Liability Cost Estimation & Assurance

Historically, only publicly traded companies were required to account for Contingent Environmental Liabilities.

With a focus over the last 10 years on consistent accounting standards and practices through both the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), companies that are looking to merge, acquire or divest and/or increase credit are adopting environmental accrual programs.

Whether you are required by law, find it a business advantage or are preparing for sale, understanding and accurately estimating and managing environmental liability is critical to properly defining your enterprise value. Undervalue a liability and the company is at risk for an unanticipated cash flow hit. Overestimate your liabilities, and you lock up needed capital that could be used to increase your top and bottom line.
