Business Appraisals

Paige Appraisals, LLC offers a wide range of Business Appraisals and Valuation services for a small to medium size business. The following is an overview of the business valuation process and appraisal services we offer:   

Business Appraisal Services:

BUY-SELL TRANSACTIONS:

We help define the value for buying or selling of a business or professional practice. We can also establish the value for partial ownership interest.

Value is can also be established to avoid potential future problems for stockholders and partnership buyouts. This valuation process can greatly simplify negotiations during the term of the operating agreement.

BANK FINANCING & SBA LOANS:

An independent business appraisal is required for certain SBA loan packages. We prepare a "summary limited" appraisal report following SBA's Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) guidelines 50 10 5(b) effective September 1, 2009 and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) requirements for lending purposes. 

INTANGIBLE ASSETS (Intellectual Property):

For economic analysis and valuation purposes, it is often necessary to distinguish between tangible and intangible assets, as well as between real property and personal property assets. These distinctions are important for a variety of accounting, legal, financial and taxation reasons.

Financial Reporting Valuation (Intangible Assets and Goodwill):

Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) requires valuation services for allocation of the acquisition purchase price among tangible assets, identification and classification of any intangible assets, such as, patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, etc. for compliance purposes.
