Certified Valuation

What is a Certified Business Valuation?

ValueCap Inc.’s certified business valuations, whether a Certified Summary Report or Certified Detailed Report, are performed by certified business appraisers who adhere to published valuation standards set forth by well-known, accredited organizations.

A business valuation report issued by a firm with certified valuators holds credibility.

Our valuation experts are certified by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) – the most recognized and esteemed organization in the valuation industry.

When Do You Need a Certified Business Valuation?

Whether you are a business owner contemplating the sale of your business, raising bank capital or investor equity, pursuing a legal claim, preparing your succession, or planning an array of accounting and IRS-related reporting events – you will want to obtain a valuation report that is credible and protects you against others from discrediting the valuation.

If you are facing any of these life events or at risk of possible IRS-related penalties or losing more than a few thousand dollars on your transaction, then we highly recommend the insight provided by a certified business valuation.

Your certified business valuation will:

  • Inform the list price and provide the fair market value of your business if you’re selling
  • Deliver the credible and reliable value of your business if buying out a shareholder
  • Provide the value of your shares, as reported to the IRS, if gifting to a family or friend
  • Add valuable credibility during negotiations or legal proceedings

In some instances, you may choose to provide the certified valuation report to your counterparty to further strengthen the reliability of the valuation and remove barriers.

In other cases, you may be required to disclose the valuation report as required by the IRS when gifting shares or purchasing a business.

In all cases, you are always better off with a certified business valuation. Although based on your circumstances and goals a non-certified Informational Valuation may meet your needs. The good news is ValueCap Inc. can help you choose which type of valuation suites your needs and provide the appropriate report in a timely manner.
