SECTION 409A COMPLIANCE
Stay under safe harbor year round
Required by IRS Section 409A
If your company offers options, you need a 409A valuation by an independent provider, like Carta. After your first 409A, we’ll deliver an updated report every year or every time you fundraise to keep you compliant.
With a Carta 409A valuation, you’ll have safe harbor and will be protected from IRS audits. We stand by our valuations and will support you in audits.
CARTA’S 409A TEAM
Experts backed by technology
Proprietary technology and insights
Carta software leverages your cap table data and financial data imported from QuickBooks or Xero to improve the efficiency of our 409A analysts. As the leader in 409A valuations, we have more market insight than any other 409A provider, especially for niche industries, including biotech and crypto.
Team of experts
Our team of over 50 analysts have years of experience in valuations. For every valuation, there is a dedicated analyst and a review committee. Our analysts are able to focus on making qualitative choices and serving you throughout the process.
Transparent, efficient process
Understand our process
Transparency makes auditor conversations easier, turnaround times clear, and gives you a deeper understanding of why your business is valued the way it is. We break down our entire process from start to finish for every valuation.
Managed through the Carta platform
Every 409A valuation starts with a kickoff call. When the report is finished, you can review and approve it in the Carta platform. You can then download the report anytime from Carta.
