As you search for Credited Valuation Professional it is important to select a professional that takes the time to sit with the client and review their valuation needs. Generally, there are three type of reports.
Calculation Report - This report that values the ownership interest in a business through an agreed-on calculation approach. It can be valuable for business owners and professional when using the following:
Use of values provided by the client or a third party
Assisting an owner or broke to establish an initial asking price for the potential sale of a business
Developing a preliminary value for litigation matters
Any matter where an initial or calculation of value is acceptable
Formal Appraisal - A complete appraisal such as a summary report or a comprehensive valuation report provides a formal presentation of the value of the business. The valuation analyst provides a conclusion of value for the business or business ownership interest. These reports are typically required for instances in which business values are calculated by a independent third party such as a Credited Valuation Professional.
What Valuation Service is Appropriate? It is important to discuss with a Credited Valuation Professional the various levels of valuation services from the least expensive Calculation Report to the most expensive Comprehensive Valuation Report which provides a conclusion of value. The wrong appraisal for your purpose can cost significantly more when it does not hold up in a business negotiation, reviewed by IRS or in litigation.
