Selling Your Business? How MUCH is Your Equipment Worth?

You’ve decided to sell your business. OK, how do you price it? That’s a complicated question, but one part you will definitely need to know – How much is your equipment CURRENTLY worth? You shouldn’t trust just anyone to determine the value of machinery and equipment. Determining the value of machinery / Equipment should be done by a qualified and certified Machinery and Equipment professional appraiser. Having the machinery and equipment valued in accordance with USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) will assist your sale, as the valuation MUST pass muster with the SBA, IRS, Courts, Lenders, CPA’s and Attorneys..
