Business Valuations for Charitable Gifting

Charitable donations are a wonderful way to benefit charities or organizations. They also are helpful for your own company, as they can aid in cutting down on some tax responsibility.

Though it may seem simple to make a charitable contribution, claiming such a donation on your taxes may be more complex than you expect if that contribution is made with something other than cash. As a result, having a qualified appraiser value your contribution is not only crucial but required by the IRS.

At Gibraltar Business Valuations, we strive to provide excellent service in all we do. Our professionals are here to deliver quality service and analyses whether you need counsel on:

  • Stock and share compensations
  • Charitable contributions
  • Or impairment testing

What Are the Requirements for Charitable Contributions in Chicago?

Donative intent is often overlooked by companies. In order for a contribution to qualify as a “gift,” a company must have evidence of a desire to donate.

In addition to donative intent, there are a variety of other factors to consider, such as issues of:

  • Real property
  • Securities
  • Intellectual property
  • Conservation easements
