What’s the Difference Between Valuations and Appraisals?

Estimated Business Valuation

Estimated business valuations provide you a place to start when selling or buying a business. Estimated valuations can’t be used for legal purposes like taxable events or stock buy-backs, but outside of legal situations, estimated valuations let you save money while gaining confidence in the value of your business.

Estimated business valuations have a briefer analysis than certified business appraisals, however, this allows for a less invasive, faster process. An estimated valuation is calculated based on the financial information you provide, while a certified appraisal requires an appraiser to collect, analyze, and report on your financials. This means it’s extremely important that you provide accurate financial and bookkeeping data for the best estimated business valuation.

Certified Business Appraisal

A full business appraisal is the highest standard in valuing a company. Business appraisals are typically required for legal purposes such as SBA loans, taxable events, divorce settlements, bankruptcy, tax issues, recapitalization, or repurchasing corporate stock. Because a business appraisal is used as the standard for these types of situations, this type of report is certified as an official business appraisal.

While the gold standard of business valuation, certified appraisals are generally not necessary unless you’re in a situation that requires one. Due to the diligence and expertise required to perform a certified business appraisal, they are more expensive than an estimated business valuation.
