We provide business valuation services to attorneys, business owners, accountants, financial advisors, and corporate executives in the greater Tampa Bay area as well as throughout Florida and The United States.  The value of a business is often the business owner’s most valuable asset.  Whether you are in the midst of a shareholder dispute or difficult divorce, engaged in business tax planning or considering a transaction, the amount attached to the value of your business is extremely important.  We provide comprehensive and objective analysis to assist you in the valuation of any business interest.

We hold the following valuation credentials relating specifically to business valuation services:

ABV: Accredited in Business Valuation (issued through AICPA)
CBA: Certified Business Appraiser (issued through IBA)
CVA: Certified Valuation Analyst (issued through NACVA)

Our business valuation services include all three major purposes for such business valuations:

  • Litigation – Divorce, shareholder disputes, corporate dissolutions, bankruptcy, economic damages, etc.
  • Taxes – Gift and estate taxes, estate planning, business consulting, family limited partnerships, etc.
  • Transactions – Mergers, acquisitions, transition planning, charitable funding investments, ESOPs, buy-sell agreements, etc.

The purpose of the business valuation can have a significant impact on the ultimate determination of value.  Likewise, the standard of value can also significantly impact the business valuation.  The standard of value addresses the “value to whom”.  Varying standards of value include:

  • Fair Market Value
  • Investment Value
  • Fair Value
  • Intrinsic or Fundamental Value

Recent trends and market factors are making it increasingly difficult to capture true entity value. It is vitally important that the firm valuing your business understands these trends and has the industry expertise to capture the true value of your business. See our Related Articles.
