If you're buying or selling a business, or doing estate planning, a business valuation will be necessary. Bull Moose offers two different reports.
Calculation of Value - $2,000
This report is typically used by someone who is considering buying or selling a business, or by someone looking to do some financial planning. While not as comprehensive as an opinion of value, it contains many of the same calculations and renders an accurate business value.
Opinion of Value - $6,000
An Opinion of Value is a comprehensive report that is necessary for gift/estate tax purposes and litigation. It contains everything a Calculation of Value does, but it also goes much deeper into discussions on overall economy, industry economics, and considers valuation using three different approaches.
A few years ago I decided to take the leap and own my own practice after years as an associate. It was a scary and exciting time. Mike was able to help us obtain financing by providing us with a comprehensive business plan that not only gave me comfort that the business could be a success, but also gave us credibility with the bank.
Once we were started, Bull Moose handled all of our bookkeeping, payroll and taxes and I've been happy with their pro-active approach. Recently, they suggested we should have the bank look at dropping our interest rate. They did, and it reaped us immediate savings.
