Establishing Fair Market Values

Value is often over or underestimated. Conclusions about what a company’s worth can be created from owners seeing what another company sold for or what an owner thinks his or her business is worth. That may not be a realistic value. Businesses, or any asset, are only worth what someone will pay for them in the current marketplace.

Value Can Affect:

  • Sale or Purchase Prices
  • Tax Liabilities
  • Life Insurance Needs
  • Retirement Plans
  • Estate Values
  • Damage Claims
