Caveat Emptor

Business appraisal is a specialty that’s not often understood by the client, their other professional advisors, or other parties related to the situation.

If the appraisal is prepared by someone who isn’t properly certified, the appraisal may fall apart under scrutiny.

Certified appraisals, prepared by certified/accredited appraisers in full compliance with the professional standards of the leading professional associations and USPAP, will stand up to challenge by opposing parties.

The Bottom Line:
An unimpeachable appraisal will save the client time, aggravation and unnecessary additional professional fees (legal and accounting).
