Valuation Products Fit For Your Valuation Purpose
InteleK has developed 3 categories of business valuation products designed for the various valuation purposes, all customized to the individual business’s requirements, including those of a complex nature.
Summary Appraisal Report
Increasing in the depth of analysis from the indicative valuation, a Summary Appraisal Report is a certified report that can be used for informal and formal purposes. Not appropriate for outside scrutiny / litigation risk, (i.e. IRS or partnership disputes).
Detailed Appraisal Report
A Detailed Appraisal Report is a formal and certified valuation, and used for purposes as such. A Detailed Appraisal Report is required for litigation purposes or tax purposes where a high degree of scrutiny is placed on the valuation.
For business owners who are proactive, knowing that businesses are ever changing and evolving, and that preparation is key for making informed and better decisions. Not appropriate for situations of outside review / litigation risk.
Each business and hence valuation situation is unique, often providing additional complexities that require an expert to accurately identify the valuation landscape, where the increased risk lies, and how to value the subject assets with an extremely high degree of defensibility. InteleK appraisers are these experts, ready for your complex valuation situation.
Client-Specific Pricing for a Custom, Client-Specific Valuation Report
If your business doesn’t require the services, you won’t pay for them with InteleK. We believe that pricing should be determined by your needs.
In our experience, each client is unique. As a result, we do not generate cookie cutter reports based on cookie cutter pricing as such an approach exposes clients to many significant risks in the future. As valuation and risk reduction experts, we carefully and holistically consider many aspects of each client’s situation such as a valuation purpose, compliance with relevant laws and regulations, litigation risk, nature of a business, quality of financial statements, complexity of capital structure, range and difficulty of applicable valuation methods and other issues.
We believe that an educated client is our best client. Therefore, we are also happy to spend as much time as necessary educating our clients about our approach and results so that they can understand how sound valuation practices reflect the value of their business and reduce future compliance and litigation risks.
Our extensive expertise and high level of attention to detail allow each client to receive the most relevant valuation report, which can also withstand a very high degree of outside scrutiny. Such level of quality allows our clients to not only address their immediate needs but also materially reduce the risk of very expensive and high disruptive disputes and litigation.
In our view, the best and most cost effective preventative measure to avoid material adverse impacts on your business is a quality valuation report.
Please contact one of our accredited appraisers for pricing details specific to your valuation needs.
