Business Valuation Services

The U.S. Government has been increasingly pushing for business valuationexperts to be accredited by one of the national accrediting organizations. InCourt, judges are being called upon to verify that experts are in fact experts. Toqualify as a valuation expert in litigation matters or with the IRS, an expert needsto be able to demonstrate through education, training, and experience that theexpert has the competence, knowledge, and understanding to value a businessenterprise. Valuing a business is far more than putting numbers into a softwareprogram: a credible expert will be current on valuation issues, understandthe sources and methodologies used, and be able to explain them clearly andsuccinctly.

As Certified Valuation Analysts, We have been designated by the NationalAssociation of Certified Valuators and Analysts--the largest such association inthe United States. NACVA's CVA and AVA credentials have been accreditedby the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), a division ofthe National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA) and is the onlyvaluation credentialing organization to be so certified.
