Anderson testimonial

“Capshare was recommended to me and I’m glad I looked into it! Capshare provides the least expensive independent 409a valuation and they were able to save us $1500 over what we would have paid for the cheapest alternative. All-in-all it was an easy and quick process.”

Snyder testimonial

“In looking for a great 409a valuation, one of our VC’s suggested Capshare. All we had to do was provide documentation and answer some simple questions. It did not require a significant investment of time on my end, a huge plus. I was able to review the appraiser’s work and overall I was very pleased with the process and the end product.”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I pay for a 409A without using Capshare?

    No, we require all 409A customers to subscribe to cap table management (even if you have less than 20 shareholders).

  • What are the benefits of a Capshare 409A as opposed to a standalone 409A?

    First, the cost of Capshare's 409A/CTM bundle is generally about 50% of the cost of a standalone 409A. So you are getting the world's best cap table management software as a bonus. In addition, cap table transactions are a critical input into any 409A valuation. Getting the cap table modeled correctly is complicated but necessary. You can have confidence that a Capshare 409A will take into account all of the relevant cap table data. Lastly, Capshare constantly monitors your cap table to make sure that you are 409A compliant.

  • Do I need to pay every month? Can I just pay up front? Could I just pay for 1 month?

    You can pay up front or monthly. If you choose to pay up front we will give you an 8.7% discount. If you choose to pay monthly, you will sign a contract that obligates you to make at least 12 payments. We provide the monthly option to allow you to spread out payments and to allow you to compare our pricing to some other vendors who use monthly billing.

  • Why should I pay more if I can find a less expensive 409A somewhere else?

    Our philosophy around 409A compliance is that you should buy a solid product or just do your own 409A for free. You shouldn't buy a 409A that isn't even worth the money you spent. You also shouldn't overpay when you need capital to grow your business. We offer a low-priced 409A that is still defensible. We use independent, 3rd party valuation firms to ensure it will pass IRS and auditor scrutiny.

  • How long does it take? What if I need my 409A in a hurry?

    It usually takes 5-10 business days. We can provide valuations faster upon request.

  • Who will sign my 409A valuation?

    An independent valuation firm will sign your valuation. These firms partner use Capshare's software. So you get the best of personal, expert attention and software to minimize human error.

Do you have the expertise to perform your own valuation? We would love to have you use the software to perform the valuation yourself. Click here to learn more.
