- The Often Overlooked ONGOING Value Of a Certified Business Appraisal (applies to all below)
- Most business people think of appraisals as only necessary for
the sale or purchase of businesses and their related assets. This is one
true and valid purpose, but you can only buy, and then sell, the
same business once. However, there is the too often overlooked ONGOING value
that pertains to ALL business operators, day in and day out, throughout the
life of a business.
That ongoing value of a Certified Business Appraisal is documented proof of value for
Most business owners
immediately insure a business and its assets upon purchase, or assume
the existing policy of the former owner. In either case, most people
allow any assessment, or valuation, of hard goods to be done by their "trusted"
insurance company's own adjustor. Realize though, it is in
the best interest of insurance companies to value your property as
low as legally possible. They are in business to make money - just like you.
A Certified Appraisal of your Business and its Machinery and Equipment
protects you from the calamity of finding too late that your well
maintained mechanical assets were valued at "
Book" by your insurance company - even though they were
well maintained, rebuilt and in "as-new" condition.
Business Appraisals done by a Certified Appraiser hold up in court and defend
you against insurance company's self interest. A certified appraisal is
insurance against your own insurer. In a court of law, it is not what you
know - it is what you can prove.

could be the deciding factor that saves your business - even though you thought
that was what your insurance company was for.

- Divorce attorneys are needed to declare the value of the husband's business
- and, more frequently these days, the value of a wife's business as well.

by a certified appraiser BEFORE the event.

other party's attorneys in case of liability.
