Business Valuations: A Crucial Part Of Property Division

Divorce raises a host of financial issues.

The outcome may affect your financial picture for a long time to come.

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 the 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
  • Goodwill
  • 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. The equitable distribution of assets is a critical part of divorce resolution. Business valuation is a key element and must be addressed.
