Roberto Castro, JD, MST, MBA, CVA, CPVA, recently prepared a book review of The Art Of Business Valuation, Accurately Valuing a Small Business in the QuickRead publication put out by The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. His introduction:

“This is a book review of The Art of Business Valuation: Accurately Valuing a Small Business. This book is a guide and desk reference for valuing small and micro businesses under $10 million in revenues.

The primary question answered in the book is: How do we as business valuators, business brokers, accountants, lawyers, owners, and other interested parties who prepare, review, evaluate, or use business valuations for small and very small businesses in difficult environments?

This is an environment where owners are still engaged in planning for the future. The owners are taking out loans. They are adding and eliminating partners who are often lifelong friends or family members, adding to the volatility of the mix. They are getting divorces. Some are even selling or filing for bankruptcy.

All of these common activities require an accurate business valuation; this is not just a matter of applying techniques, it requires that the person valuing the business continually ask him or herself “Does this make sense?”

The review goes on to explain how the book answers these questions. Click here to see the whole review.
