The Shoobx platform offers a robust suite of tools for the growing startup. From equity management to employee onboarding Shoobx was built for the entrepreneur.
With Shoobx, all of your company information is captured on the platform. All changes you make ripple through the system and all the necessary updates are automatically made. Because we leverage your data intelligently, future valuations can be completed in days.
At Shoobx, we build tools that save our entrepreneurs time and money. We do this by leveraging technology to automate those things that lawyers and accountants typically do by hand. Let us make your 409A experience easier and more affordable.
What is 409A?
Section 409A was initially enacted as part of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. Section 409A requires that a stock price’s fair market value is determined by the “reasonable application of a reasonable valuation method”. 409A valuations are most commonly performed to assist companies with setting the strike price for their employee stock options, which should be at or above fair market value. Severe penalties can be imposed for non-compliance when granting employee stock options that have a strike price that is less than the fair market value of the stock price on the grant date.
Do I need a 409A report?
Check with your auditor as to whether you need a signed 409A valuation report. Generally speaking, 409A valuations of early stage companies (up to Series A round) are not audited, but you should verify this with your auditor.
So, how does this work?
If your company already uses Shoobx, you can purchase a 409A valuation right in Shoobx today. If you are new to Shoobx, we will need to onboard your company onto the Shoobx platform. We will talk you through the steps.
