Business Valuations - Fees for Service

NBA Provides Professional Valuations at Competitive Prices

Fee Criteria

The fee is based upon the hours estimated to complete the engagement. The number of hours required for any given engagement increases with complexity and the nature the engagement including:

  • Standard of Value required
  • Premise of Value required
  • Level of Value (Enterprise Level or Partial Interest Value)
  • Whether Discounting is required

What Are the Fee Ranges

Our fee can range from as low as $1,000 for a limited "Broker Opinion of Value" or "Calculation of Value" engagement to in excess of $25,000 for a more extensive Business Valuation.

What Dictates the Fee Criteria

The Client does not determine the criteria. Rather the nature of the Valuation Engagement itself determines the criteria based upon the Purpose, Use, Intended User's, Standard of Value, Premise of Value, whether Discounting is required, etc. Nevertheless, we do all we can to accommodate our client's needs within their given financial constraints. However, we will never compromise our standards.
