Business Valuations

Book value is typically inaccurate and outdated, unlike fair market value which gives a solid current value conclusion. If machinery and equipment are not appraised correctly, the entire business valuation is skewed, potentially putting a business at risk and increasing its liability.

Buy/Sell Agreements

When a business sells its assets, fixed and tangible assets often must be valued separately from the business’ intangible assets.

Financing/SBA Loans

A certified appraisal report of tangible assets is required when a business owner is seeking to obtain the maximum loan amount from a lender. Businesses often use their tangible assets as collateral to support these loans, and typically the loan amount is derived from 40-60% of the value of the pledged assets.


Many businesses lease equipment and are offered a purchase option at the termination of the lease. This option typically stipulates fair market value as the buy-out price. We can help determine this value and assist in purchase negotiations.


Our certified appraisal reports will help win your case by providing substantiated facts that will hold up to the highest scrutiny.
