Why should you use a business valuation analyst ?
Establishing an accurate assessment of value for any
business, enterprise or intangible asset requires in-depth, specialized knowledge. Business valuation professionals with practical
experience as C.P.A.'s are well prepared to meet the client's exacting needs. Their varied experience and training in valuation
theory and application, litigation support, accounting, tax, auditing, finance, insurance, economics and investments prepare
the business valuation analyst to provide the client with a comprehensive analysis and a competent valuation.
facts, figures, balance sheets and financial statements simply are not adequate to accurately measure the true fair market
value of an asset. Many different approaches and methods of valuation analysis should be reviewed and selectively matched
to the asset being valued. Selecting the most appropriate methodology, supported by various types of analysis, including sophisticated
mathematical calculations, ratio analysis, industry comparisons, economic and market analysis, relative business risk assessment,
and many other considerations, is required to achieve a competent valuation.
When valuing your business or assets
it is important to have the assurance that the valuation analyst considers all the relevant information and facts so you get
the full economic benefit you deserve. Using a credentialed and qualified business valuator will give you confidence, peace-of-mind,
and the advantage of knowing you will receive a professional product.
