Do non-US entities need 409A valuations?
Whether or not a non-US company needs to obtain a 409A valuation depends on the specifics of the company and valuation project. We have had some non-US companies request a 409A valuation to set the strike price for US employees working abroad. We have also had non-US clients decide not to obtain a 409A valuation. Discuss whether or not a 409A valuation is right for your non-US entity with your board and law firm.
