Business Valuation 

This valuation is in accordance with the standards set forth by the American Institute of Accountants (AICPA) and the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA).  It involves meeting all the standards set forth in SSVS1, including considering all three main methods of valuation, financial analysis, industry analysis, economic analysis and more. The end result is called a "Conclusion of Value".  This method is preferred if litigation is anticipated.

Calculation of Value

This is any agreed-upon set of procedures that does not meet all the standards of SSVS1.  It is a more economical option for very small companies or when the chances of litigation are not likely.  Our most common calculation of value involves a capitalization of earnings of an established business.  The end result is called a "Calculated Value".
