Business Valuation Services

For various reasons, business owners may need to know the value of their businesses or their respective interests in a business enterprise. Owners and shareholders can benefit from knowing the drivers of value in their businesses in order to develop business strategies to increase the value for an eventual sale to a third party. In the event of a sale, a business valuation can help owners make sure that time and effort are focused solely on valid and competitive bids from prospective buyers. Valuation reports in accordance with IRS guidelines are often necessary for compliance with income, estate and gift tax regulations and can often lead to minimizing tax liabilities in certain transactions. We have experience providing valuation services for the following purposes:

  • IRS Estate/gift tax return compliance
  • Developing valuation formulas for shareholder and/or partnership buy/sell agreements
  • Sales of partial or whole interests; Shareholder disputes
  • Divorce
  • Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs)
  • Management information purposes

Whatever your valuation needs may be, we would be pleased to assess your situation and provide recommendations regarding the appropriate level of valuation services necessary to meet your needs. We have Certified Valuation Analysts (CVA’s) on staff as well as unlimited resources from our professional associations with the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts and CPAmerica to provide our clients with professional business valuation expertise.
