Every business owner must, at some time, consider the question, "What is my business worth?"
Common uses for a business valuation are:
- Buying or selling a business
- Succession planning
- Stockholder or partner agreements
- Gift and estate tax planning (Rules of Adequate Disclosure)
- Shareholder or partnership disputes
- Acquisition allocations
- Goodwill impairment testing
- Divorce matters
There are many more uses for business valuation services. Understanding business valuation methodology is critical to obtaining a credible valuation. Not all CPAs are qualified to perform business valuation services. We outsource this function to a group of qualified professionals in order to retain our independence.
Sometimes, especially in shareholder and partner disputes or in divorce cases, the parties will end up in litigation. We have testified in a number of different jurisdictions in relation to record keeping and other matters. Working with your attorney, we help you put together a team of quality professionals that will offer you the best possible support in a very difficult situation.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about business valuation or litigation support
