Purchase Price Allocation (PPA) is a financial accounting process used to allocate the purchase price of a company's acquisition to its tangible and intangible assets. PPA is essential for both financial reporting and tax purposes, as it helps determine the fair values of various assets acquired during the business combination. It involves detailed assessments of assets such as property, equipment, customer relationships, patents, trademarks, and other identifiable intangible assets. Additionally, any excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired is allocated to goodwill. This process ensures compliance with accounting standards, particularly ASC 805, which mandates PPA in certain acquisition cases and provides valuable insights for clients screening our website, allowing them to make well-informed decisions during acquisition transactions.
