A professional business valuation may be a critical need for many businesses. While the purpose of a valuation is to simply establish a dollar figure on the value of a business or business interest, getting to that end result is anything but simple.
Business valuations are complex — requiring thorough investigation, extensive research, and careful analysis of data. However, insightful and professional judgment is also necessary, which is commonly gained through years of training and experience. An objective, proven analyst brings both credibility and impartiality, especially when a company's value may be in dispute.
The RMA team of professionals provides financial reporting, expert analysis, and litigation experience for a variety of business valuation needs. Our specialists have extensive training, experience, and professional designations from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and other organizations in the area of business valuation.
