Pulley 409A Process

You can get your 409A valuation on Pulley in these simple steps:

1. Get on our Growth Plan which includes access to 409A valuations

2. Request your 409A valuation on Pulley. Click 409A Valuations in your left-hand navigation bar and select "Request New 409A"

3. Upload the required documents to your 409A dashboard

4. Receive your 409A valuation report in a few business days

409A valuations determine the value of stock that you give to employees. The value of equity at publicly traded companies is easy to determine by looking at their stock price. There is no public market for equity of privately held companies, and a 409A valuation by a qualified, third party is the only way to determine the value of the equity. Pulley’s valuation team of experts will provide your business with a fair and defensible 409A report.
