The Value Plan Alternative for a Small Business Valuation
The Value Plan is much like our extensive business valuation report, but almost all the overhead is eliminated. It uses the same business valuation methods and relies on the same market data, but it’s stripped‐down, agile, flexible, and much less expensive to produce. It’s very brief and easy to read ‐ think of a speedboat next to an ocean liner.
When to Use Value Plan
- Buy-sell agreements that need a fair market value
- Share Pricing for New Investors

Benefits of the Business Value Plan
There are many benefits to a business owner, but the most important are:
- Thorough, broad‐spectrum analysis of value in 8‐17 pages.
- Ease of experimenting with different assumptions.
- Great for a small business valuation that needs a sales price.
- Designed for small business owners and their business brokers.
- A good tool for small business’s exit strategy.
- Can be used for SBA pre-financing.
- Aid in identifying factors to increase value and cash flow.
- Low cost with a quick turnaround‐ starting at $2,500.
We need a certain amount of information about the business to do this. The valuation process steps are:
- A Value Consultant will talk with you about what meets your needs and the information we need.
- We use financial statements, balance sheets, income statements, market share, and market data, and we run financial projections for the next five years to get a measure of your company’s expected revenue, earnings, and cash flows.
- We run several valuation methods and pick the best for your specific situation and industry.
- We use the market approach, income approach, and asset value approach to determine the final business valuation and your market valuation numbers.
- Our team then sends you a draft report by email, giving you the fair market value.
- You and your advisors can review the analysis, and we can discuss the results. You may have changes or additional information.
Note: If you use the Value Plan but subsequently need a full‐scale report, we will apply up to half of the Value Plan cost to the formal valuation report depending on the situation and the age of the data.
When Not to Use the Business Value Plan
The Value Plan may not be the best choice in some situations like estate planning. Agencies like the IRS, SEC, DOL, courts, and most banks will require a full‐scale formal business valuation report. However, there are exceptions that your valuation expert is happy to discuss about our business appraisal services and valuation cost.
