Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisal

The Appraisal Report

The Appraisal Report (visual)

There are no subsitutes for a professionally bound and embossed certified appraisal report!

99.9% of appraisal reports fail to accurately value the tangible assets. Why? That's a great question, and we're glad that you asked. Inaccurate appraisals are not uncommon, and they can cause serious consequences to your business, as can reliance upon any one of the following methods to determine the value of capital equipment. How many of these methods do you currently use? 1) Guess; 2) Rely on Bookvalue; 3) Rely on the word of a non-certified person who may have a "hidden" agenda. Are you surprised to learn that all three methods are inaccurate and filled with liability?

If an Appraisal Report is based on guessing, relying on book value, or relying on a word of a non-certified person who may have a "hidden" agenda, the Report will not hold up scrutiny because it lacks substantiation. Not only can values not be substantiated, but the Report itself is not written to reflect the approaches to value, market conditions, photographs and required substantiation that a USPAP Report contains. USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) was promulgated by Congress and is accepted around the world as the authoritative source for machinery/equipment and business appraisals.

Beware of unsubstantiated values. Not all appraisal reports are equal. When it comes to business, at some point in time, you will probably need to know the true value of the machinery and equipment. Since the answer to that question often affects an important decision, it makes good business and financial sense to utilize a professional appraiser.

Business owners, attorneys, the IRS, lenders and courts all ask the same questions:

“What's the machinery and equipment really worth?”
“Is there goodwill?”
“Do only the tangible assets of the business have value?”
“If so, how are those assets valued?”
