Business Valuation

What is value? At Chugh CPAs, LLP our Consultants can help answer this critical question. There are many reasons for a business valuation including: agreements between partnerships or shareholders, estate planning, liquidation or reorganization of a business, conversion of a “C” corporation to an “S” corporation and financing, mergers and acquisitions, gifting and estate taxes and buy-sell agreements. The purpose of a valuation is critical to determining the standard of value applied to an asset as values may differ sharply; a value for acquisition purposes will differ distinctly from—and require a different approach than—values for tax purposes, shareholder disputes, estate planning, divorce, liquidation or other purposes for which business valuations are needed. Our business valuations provide you the satisfaction and confidence of knowing how much your business is worth. With our timely and efficient service, we deliver peace of mind.

A valuation establishes the worth of a business using the three valuation approaches: income approach, market approach and asset approach. Pertinent financial, tax, economic, and industry data are analyzed and interpreted to arrive at the worth of a business.
