Business Valuations

What is your business worth to you and others? Unfortunately, without proper analysis, the answers can be quite subjective. Henry & Peters recognizes the impact business valuation can have on planning and taxation. As such, we work diligently to provide solid data and analysis for clients.

Of the numerous standards of value existing in today’s marketplace, the most frequently used include fair market value, fair value, investment value and intrinsic value. An understanding of the differences in these types of value and when each is appropriate is critical to ensuring clients maximize total return in given situations.

Henry & Peters provides useful and objective value assessments in the following situations:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Dissenting shareholder actions
  • Purchase price allocations
  • Charitable contributions
  • Shareholder buyouts
  • Incentive stock options
  • Bankruptcy reorganizations
  • Estate and gift planning
  • Employee stock ownership plan (ESOP)

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is the national organization for CPA’s and awards the Accredited Business Valuation credential. As credentialed professionals, we rely on the AICPA for valuable input and direction in all phases of our work on behalf of clients.
