Fresh Start Accounting & Reporting

Fresh Start Accounting & Reporting
Plan Your Recovery From Bankruptcy

Recovering successfully from bankruptcy is a challenge that affects many businesses. Fresh start accounting allows a company to restate its balance sheet to fair value as of the day the business emerges from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

However, most businesses do not emerge from bankruptcy protection more than once. This means that many accounting departments lack the experience in developing a fresh start plan and isolating and valuing assets appropriately. If not implemented correctly, a company could face serious challenges to its short- and long-term financial success.

BIA/Kelsey has a team of experts who can help your business emerge from bankruptcy and insolvency. Our dedicated staff advises companies and performs valuation services in conformity with the procedures established in SFAS 141.
