Who We Are
BUSINESS VALUATION SERVICES FOR FRESNO AND THE CENTRAL VALLEY OF CALIFORNIA. A firm of CPAs and CVAs that specializes in business appraisal and valuation matters.
Valley Valuations is a team of CPAs and Certified Valuation Analysts specially trained to help you with your business appraisal needs. We provide our services to business owners, attorneys, CPA firms, banks, and others who need specialized valuation and appraisal assistance. Our valuations are typically prepared for the sale of businesses, shareholder disputes, partner buy-outs, family succession, marriage dissolution, mergers & acquisitions, S-Corporation elections, and gift and estate tax returns. If you are looking for a professional business evaluator to assist you with your project, we can help. We have unique training, licensing, and experience to complete your project.
If you wish to sell your business, either now or in the future, Valley Valuations can guide and counsel you through the process, providing unique professional services that will lead to a successful close while maximizing the value and liquidity event to meet your expectations.
All business owners eventually exit their business, either with proper planning and forethought or haphazardly and ill-planned. Why be the latter? We are here to assist in those times with professional planning, discussion, and preparation of a business exit plan. It all starts with our business valuation and appraisal services. Most of our clients come to us by referral from other professionals, whether that is their attorney, CPA, or banker. We come alongside them in a team spirit to complete your project. You can expect experienced, candid, and independent advice from our advisors. It’s best to engage us early in the process while we have time to position your business, shore-up areas of potential weakness, and allow us to advise you on ways to increase the value of your business in the eyes of a buyer. There are often weak points in your business that may hinder your business’s successful sale and close. We can address those items to remove or mitigate them from compromising the sale of your business. Our history of hundreds of engagements across many industries is leveraged to provide you with experienced and professional services.
Our unique and time-tested process of establishing maximum value, marketing your business, and closing the deal, maximizes shareholder value and liquidity with the least amount of cost, time, and effort. You can rest easy and focus on running your business while we perform our services. Our advisors have advanced accounting, business, tax, and finance degrees, including certifications and licenses in business valuation and accounting.
While assisting clients from coast-to-coast is common, our practice area is primarily the Central Valley of California, the Central Coast, and the Greater Western States. We have provided services in over 25 states.
At some level, we all recognize that we will leave our businesses someday. While you may not yet have a vision for your life after the business, you do understand that your exit from your business is likely to be the largest, most important financial transaction of your life. Does it make sense to go into that transaction without an objective understanding of your company’s value? We don’t think so, and we’d like to help you plan for the most important financial decision of your life today.
What’s your need? Sale of your business, partner buy-out, gift or estate valuation, buy-sell agreement, succession planning? We encourage you to review the remainder of our website. And, call us today for a free consultation. We’d be pleased to discuss your project further.
