Course Description

Of 23 million small businesses in the US, most are sole proprietorships.  About 6 million with less than 50 employees.

“Main Street” businesses, generally with revenues of less than $2 Million.

Business types include a wide variety of manufacturing, distribution, and service business

“How much is this business interest worth?”

This question is not one that is easily answered. 

The answer depends on: 

1) Economic factors (these can be local, regional, national, and international)

2) The premise and standard of the value selected

3) Appropriate valuation method applied

4) Interest being valued

Historically, the valuation of a closely held company was more of an art than a science; there was

some guidance provided by the IRS and minimal reporting standards.

For closely-held businesses, where the company stock or ownership interest is not traded on an open, public exchange, there is no quick and easy formula that allows us to determine the value of the business interest. Just as each business is unique, the valuation process for each business will be unique also. There is a general process, however that we can rely on to ensure completeness in our approach. This CPE course describes the steps that you as a client or an advisor should expect to see when engaging a valuation analyst to complete the valuation of a closely-held business.

This online CPE course will address the fundamentals necessary for an analyst to consider in undertaking Business Services for closely-held firms.

  • What is a Closely-Held Business?
  • What is a “Main Street” Business?
