Determining the value of a business, asset or ownership right, requires a great deal of experience, financial knowledge and judgment. Valuation has evolved into three basic approaches, each with many methods or techniques. Because of the many subjective factors involved with applying the many methods and techniques, persons performing the valuation process often arrive at significantly different conclusions. Further, in the business valuation arena, there are frequently two sides with diverse interests in the valuation conclusion, for example, the buyer and seller, the tax payer and tax collector, the plaintiff and defendant, and the husband and wife in a divorce situation. Therefore, when choosing a valuation professional, it is critical to consider the appraiser’s education and experience, the appraiser’s dedication to fully evaluate the many value drivers, and the appraiser’s ability to persuasively articulate the valuation process and conclusion.
