What Goes Into A Strong Valuation?
Valuation is a critical part of the property division process. Yet determining how much a business is worth is far more complicated than assessing the value of real estate or motor vehicles, for example. Countless considerations may factor into the valuation, including:
- Cash flow
- Past and current profits
- Assets and debts
- Expected financial returns
- Tax ramifications
There are several approaches to valuing a business. Arriving at a reasonable assessment — one that will hold water in court — typically requires involving a professional appraiser. It's important to work with trusted professionals from the outset.
At my office, I routinely work with appraisers, certified public accountants and tax advisers who are well-respected and vetted in their qualifications. You can feel confident that your property interests are in more than capable hands.
