The value of a business is important information for any sized company, from publicly traded corporations, family owned business or even a sole proprietor. Companies may require a valuation for a number of reasons including: Estate and Gift Tax Planning/Compliance, Corporate Dissolution, Succession Planning, Financial Reporting, or Purchase/Sale of the Company (or a partial interest of the Company). Privately owned companies could be a family's largest asset and they should know the value of what they own for exit strategies, divorce settlements or gift tax purposes. Business valuations can serve many purposes and Lemasters, CPA will work hard to get you an accurate, honest and dependable valuation.
