409A valuations are something every company has to get as soon as they step into the business world and begin issuing shares or stock options. When a company reaches the stage where they need to get their 409A valuation done, they then begin to look for the right 409A. 409A is a set of rules and regulations that private companies have to follow for valuing their common stock. This value under a 409a valuation is presumed to be ‘reasonable’ by the IRS and burden of proof falls on the IRS in case they decide to investigate.
