What is the business worth? Jones & Roth can answer that question.
It is critical you have a sound, professional business appraisal by a certified appraiser whether you are selling or buying a business or an interest in a business, planning your estate, preparing the tax filing of an estate, settling a contract dispute, or involved in a divorce. Valuing a business requires a broad scope of technical and business experience. Judgment, analysis, and independence are key factors in the services we offer clients.
We apply sound appraisal techniques and a thorough understanding of corporate finance and today’s tax laws to provide a valuation tailored to your business and situation. We have experience in appraising interests in all business types (corporations, general and limited partnerships, LLCs, proprietorships, including real estate joint ventures/undivided fractional interests) in virtually all industries.
Our business valuation team is one of the most experienced teams in Oregon. Led by Bill Mason, ASA, CPA/ABV, CFF, our team has served as expert witnesses for our clients in US Tax Court, Federal District Court and state courts on valuation matters and have been appointed by courts to advise them on valuation matters.
