Thank you for an excellent and timely company valuation.  Our small company was quoted $2500 from an associate of our corporate attorney and $6500 from an associate of our accountant.  I informed both that I would "" for $399.00.  I forwarded your final report to them and both were impressed.  Our attorney mentioned that your report was more professional looking than others he has received for larger corporations. 

I will definitely be using your services again next year.

Our 3 family companies needed quick, accurate appraisals to set initial values for updated buy-sell agreements.    We'd been required to pay nearly $ 5,000 for a single appraisal some years ago so I was delighted to find and figured it was at least worth a try to judge the quality of the process & product.
The reports James provided are thorough, accurate and equally important, make sense to us.   They were also completed in a very timely manner.
I'm confident these reports will support our business valuation today and we will be able to afford regular updates in the future.
I will not hesitate to use for our future needs.

"Give onlinebusinessvaluation a chance to show you how powerful their services are. I was skeptical of what they could deliver for their prices, but I had already experienced the alternative – paying 10 times more to a local firm and getting a report that was used once and then forgotten. So, I gave Business Matter Valuation a try. Beyond being fast, affordable, and easy to use, they helped me think strategically about the value of my business. And that is priceless!"

Business Valuation Ad Valorem Taxes E-mail

Business Valuation Ad Valorem Taxes

 Ad valorem is a Latin expression that has found its way into English dictionaries. It means "according to value" and is the basis for assessing property taxes in virtually all state and local taxing jurisdictions. Municipal taxing authorities have been hard-pressed to raise ade- quate funds. Sometimes assessing officers are pressured to be aggres- sive in their opinions of the values of taxable properties.

Many sudden and huge increases in property taxes have been levied on such busi- nesses as manufacturers, shopping centers, and motels. In many cases, the economics of the respective businesses have not justified the in- creases. Businesses have often been assessed for real estate values that exceeded the entire going-concern value of the total business, including the real estate. Taxpayers can save millions of dollars by properly valuing busi- nesses in which the business and the physical property are interrelated. Fair market value is the legal standard of value in most ad valorem cases.

The real-world market values such properties on their ability to produce income, which is this book's primary business valuation / Business Appraisal focus. Proper ap- plication of business business valuation / Business Appraisal principles should be able to counteract some methods used in many assessing jurisdictions. These methods sometimes produce values well in excess of the applicable legal stan- dard of fair market value. On the other hand, in many states, ad valorem taxes are applicable only to the value of tangible assets. In these cases, taxpayers may save a lot in taxes by having an analyst separate the total value into the tan- gible and intangible portions, paying tax only on the tangible asset value.
