Business Valuation

Business Valuation is used to estimate the selling price of a business, to resolve disputes related to estate and gift taxation, divorce litigation, and to allocate business purchase price among business assets, and many other business and legal purposes. Valuation of a closely held business requires gathering facts, information and the application of sound business judgment necessary to render and support valuations of closely held businesses. The result of a comprehensive valuation is an opinion of value. Accompanying our opinion is a report that generally includes a thorough analysis of your business, the industry you operate in, the economic climate, financial and non-financial considerations important to the valuation, an explanation of our valuation approach and our conclusion. We are frequently called upon to testify with respect to the value of a closely held business.

As a business owner, you may require a valuation for one of the following reasons:

  • Estate and gift tax purposes
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Purchase or sale of stock
  • Stock options
  • Divorce
  • Litigation
