Business Valuation

A professional business valuation is a critical tool in estimating the current value of your business. The information provided by a business valuation can support negotiations when prepared and documented properly, for the purchase or sale. Sound business principles and strategies can be applied, but the key issues often lie behind the numbers.

Determining Value
A business valuation is needed in order to determine the appropriate value of a business or personal assets. There are many different approaches that can be utilized to determine the value of a business. Value can be expressed in terms of fair value, fair market value or investment value. At Herbein + Company, Inc., our team of business valuators are experts in identifying and determining the standard of value appropriate for your situation.
