Just as every business is unique, no two-business valuations are identical, because the facts and circumstances are always changing.
As a business owner, you may think you know how much your business is worth, but you do not. The reasons are twofold: (1) the conditions of a business fluctuates as time changes due to internal and external factors, and (2) facts and circumstances of a valuation engagement may change dramatically in some cases over time, therefore, the value of the business will also change.
In order to determine that value, you need the help a professional who is well versed in the valuation of businesses. How to find an expert? How much it cost? How long it takes? What documents are needed? Etc. Those are some of the questions many business owners, and others, are asking that we hope to provide satisfactory answers in this book.
This book, can help you get the answers you are looking for. We understand there are many other possible questions that can be asked, that also deserve answers. We decided, for this first edition, to focus on the most important and recurring ones we have received over the years. The questions are not in any particular order, but they are grouped in four sections to help the reader navigate the book easily.
This book can be used by business owners, attorneys (business, trust, divorce and others), financial advisors, financial planners, CPAs, wealth strategists, retirement specialists, insurance agents, financial/lending institutions, business brokers and others, to help educate themselves and/or answer their clients’ questions.
