Appraisal Reports

  • Abbreviated Summary Report
    A Certified Report by an accredited appraiser. Includes, fair market value calculation, explanation of valuation conclusion, earnings capacity analysis, financial, market, and economic analysis. Approximately a 15-page report. Useful in determining current market value for buyers and sellers when considering an acquisition or sale of a business.
  • Formal Report
    A formal business valuation report is the highest-level report a recipient can receive. It’s a Certified Report by an accredited appraiser and is covered by Standard 10 of the USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice). Approximately 40-80 pages in length.
  • Informal Report
    A Certified Report by an accredited appraiser. An informal report contains considerably less information than a formal report. This type of report contains little more than calculations. Most of the narrative is excluded, and many of the sections are brief. The report can range from 5-20 pages.
  • Letter Report
    A Certified Report by an accredited appraiser. Just as the name implies, this report is nothing more than a letter stating the opinion of value. Reference is made to all of the work that has been done, including the fact that working papers contain all of the supporting documentation for the opinion.
  • Oral Report
    Performed by an accredited appraiser. This type of report is generally accomplished through testimony, either by deposition or a trial. On occasion a business owner or business purchaser may want a verbal opinion as to what to what the subject business would sell for.
