Deciding whether to hire a business evaluator requires an attorney to understand the business structure and its finances. A simple business evaluation will examine past earnings, taxes, sellable assets, and outstanding contracts. A more thorough valuation may delve deeper to examine customer relationship management and industry trends. Perhaps you will be able to get the value of a business admitted into evidence without hiring a business evaluator. Explore what is needed to determine whether a business has value as a going concern, the depth of information the evaluation should provide, and the type, or even the need for, an evaluation.
