About JBV Business Valuation

The experts at JBV Business Valuation have been providing valuation services for over 30 years. What began as a sole proprietorship has grown into a boutique valuation firm serving clients across the country. Valuations are all we do; we leave all accounting and legal matters to the expert CPAs and attorneys. Our mission is to provide a valuation that is fair to all parties. All valuation experts are independent. We are fiercely independent. This stance allows us to prepare the fair and highly defensible reports we do. Our credo is “If you can’t support it, don’t state it.” Our goal is to complete projects within two to three weeks after receiving the requested data. Our success rate is virtually 100%. Many of our competitors take several months.

The BEST experience you ever had as a business owner. No joke! You’re getting a valuation done because an advisor said you needed it for some filing or other. To your ears, that meant another check you had write with no business benefit. Not the case with a JBV valuation. A valuation can be a powerful tool to increase your cash flow and the value of your business. More money in your pocket and more time to spend it! How? Call and find out!

Three weeks. Max. This requires your and your staff’s cooperation to get us the data we request. A fair and defensible valuation doesn’t take months when you’re as expert as we are.

We’ve been doing this so long we know what to ask for the first time around. Our visit to your office usually is no more than 1-1/2 hours. One week after, the draft is in your inbox.

Your business is by far your largest and most important asset. It pays for your lifestyle. It supports your family and will eventually fund your retirement. Not knowing its value and how to increase that value is like waiting till you have a heart attack before getting an EKG. Knowledge is power!

Often, the driver to obtaining a valuation is to back a transaction. Reasons can range from a gift to your kids to compensating employees with shares. While these are legit and important reasons to have a valuation, the best reasons are knowing the worth of your most valuable asset and guidance on how to improve your cash flow and the value of your business.

There are many valuation firms, most of which do a good job of meeting your advisor’s requirement for a valuation for some legal/tax filing. We, too, prepare quality defensible valuations. Like the other valuation firms, we have performed 1,000’s of valuations over several decades. We have seen all types of businesses, of all sizes and with a range of management styles. Our focus on improving our clients’ businesses gives us a very different perspective. We listen to what you, the business owner, has to say. We seek solutions to the pain points we hear about. We find and report on areas for improvement to increase both profits and your free time. Your investment in us is paid back many times.

A simple question with a simple answer: It depends. It depends on what you need the
valuation for. Is it for limited internal use or something you need for the IRS? A free 10-minute
consult will get you the answer you want.

No, performing valuations for allocation of purchase price and other reporting reasons is not something we do. Our passion lies in small business: how they are run and how to improve them. Preparing a valuation for financial reporting is like getting your company tax return in August. Too late to be relevant and not the kind of information a business owner needs. If the valuation doesn’t help you improve your business, we’re not interested.
