Business Valuation Certifications, Designations and Organizations

Following is a list with links to various valuation certifying organizations that provide credentials for individuals that provide business valuations. For a bank or other lenders to provide financing, they will require an appraisal from someone with credentials. This list is not in any particular order and your lender may require a specific designation or even a specific appraisal firm for your situation.

HOW MUCH SHOULD A VALUATION COST?

The answer depends on the credentials from the person doing the valuation. Certain organizations have very strict requirements for the procedures that must be followed in preparing the valuation.

In general the more difficult that it is to obtain the valuation credentials, the more strict the organization is on the requirements for the valuation process. Most valuations from credentialed people will have a bare bottom price of $2,500.

My experience is they usually start at $5,000 and go up to $25,000 for small and mid-sized businesses. This still depends on the size and complexity of the business. At the bottom of this section are two – do it yourself – low cost alternatives to obtain a value of a business. Use these with extreme caution.

RELATED WEBSITES

Following are additional websites that may be of interest. This is because it is one of the least expensive ways to get a report with a printout stating a value for a business. However, these are template driven reports that require someone to have knowledge of the business and a good understanding of business valuation terminology and methods. 

The report is computer generated and accordingly does not use reason or unusual circumstances in determining the value. The Fair Valuers site or the excel worksheet  from the Business Book Press may be adequate for certain situations. Please use these with extreme caution.
