Selling or Buying A Business?
VALUATIONS or appraisals are performed for a variety of purposes. We develop business valuations for such purposes as:
- selling a business or division,
- mergers and acquisitions
- tax and estate planning,
- buy-sell agreements,
- divorce settlements, and
- insurance coverage.
We determine realistic values by combining established valuation theory with practical sales experience. Contact us to discuss your needs.
Most important, we conform to the requirements set forth by the American Society Of Appraisers in its Business Valuation Standard. This Standard generally defines three scopes of work which result in three types of valuations: Appraisal, Limited Appraisal, and Calculation. Following this variation in the scope of work, our fees will range from $900 to $8,000 or more.
APPRAISAL - Our objective is to express an unambiguous opinion as to the value of the business, business ownership interest, or security, which is supported by all procedures that we deem to be relevant to the business valuation.
LIMITED APPRAISAL - Our objective is to express an estimate as to the value of an business, business ownership interest, or security, which lacks the performance of additional procedures that are required in a business valuation.
CALCULATIONS - Our objective is to provide an approximate indication of value based upon the performance of limited procedures agreed upon with our client.
YOUR REQUIREMENTS - To determine the scope of work you require, contact us to discuss your situation and the related valuation requirements.
