Business Valuation Report

A Business Valuation Report is most often used for non-litigation scenarios, including use by internal management. Most frequently such value reports are used to determine selling price of the business or assisting in establishing a buy-sell between party shareholders. It is not used for IRS or court-order corporate valuation assistance.

Business Appraisal Report

Suited for the IRS and litigation support in a court of law, a Business Appraisal Report includes applicable value, but also will show step-by-step of how such value is derived.

Stand-Alone Business Appraisal Report

Suited for the IRS and litigation support in a court of law, a Business Appraisal Report includes applicable value, but also will show step-by-step of how such value is derived. This report will also include a thorough financial analysis, including financial forecasts, common-size financials, ratio analysis, working capital and expenditure analysis and industry comparable inclusions. Discounts can also be applied, depending on the project, for lack of control and/or marketability.

Updated Annual Report

Every few years we work with owners and management to update previously-drafted Business Valuation Reports based on the latest financial data, financial conditions and market information on the company. This report will include macro changes and report of general economic outlook.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) has undergone significant transformations to its fair value reporting standards. Acquisitions are accounted for under purchase accounting rules for which acquired intangible assets are identified and valued separately. GAAP outlines five general categories of intangible assets. Intangible assets with an indefinite life and any remaining goodwill are not amortized, but rather are subject to periodic impairment testing. Goodwill impairment testing requires the valuation of a company’s reporting units.
