Yip Associates offers valuation services for a variety of purposes. We have the valuation training and experience, as well as the depth of business operational knowledge, necessary of a qualified business appraiser for valuation engagements.
The valuation process involves considering the three approaches to valuation and selecting the appropriate methodology specific to each case. The purpose of a valuation and the selected definition of value can impact the resulting value. Depending upon the specific interest being valued and the methods used, adjustments for discounts or premiums may be appropriate.
The process goes further than just applying the methodology. It requires an understanding of the business and the environment in which it operates. The environment not only includes the competition, it also includes the industry and economic conditions which impact operations. We analyze the financial operations of the business for trends, making normalizing adjustments where appropriate. We draw on our training, knowledge and experience in analyzing each business to arrive at our conclusion.
We can assist you in your valuation needs for:
- Estate and gift tax purposes
- Shareholder/Partner disputes
- Commercial litigation
- Prenuptial agreements
- Equitable distribution in divorce

If you are selling a business, you may not need a business valuation. We can assist you in identifying the value drivers for the business, which can help you in negotiating a better price.
