Helping You Determine The Value Of Your Business And Asset Holdings
Divorcing spouses who own family or closely held businesses and other assets face specific challenges when determining their value for the purposes of an agreed property settlement or in a contested divorce hearing. Valuation must include the current value of property assets, as well as the value of future earnings.
Customer good will and the discounts to valuation may also be taken into consideration. When the business is a professional practice, goodwill is only valued if it exists separate and apart from the professional’s license. It is important to determine if the factors would exist which would permit any valuation of goodwill to be made in that instance.
