Business Formation & Valuation

Whether starting a business or seeking a value on an existing company, business entity or property, having a solid understanding of financial issues, opportunities, processes, and regulatory requirements is essential. BPS has the expertise to successfully guide you through the intricacies of business formation and valuation.

Business Formation

Starting a business requires more than creating a web page; there are a multitude of issues to consider and address. Failure to do so—or engaging a less than qualified advisor—can lead to lost time, capital and competitive advantage.

BPS provides accounting and business advisory services to the Carolinas' entrepreneurial business community, focusing on business start-ups in biotech, medical, distribution, professional services, technology, and real estate industries. We consult with you on your business plan, corporate structure, accounting and tax planning issues. We also provide a wide range of electronic commerce assurance services as well as assist with the development of cost accounting systems, obtaining financing, strategic management, inventory and cash management programs, and merger/acquisition/divestiture strategies.

While it may be tempting to cut corners, particularly during the onset of a new business, having the professional insight and guidance of BPS is an invaluable investment and will help maximize the potential for success and avoid future problems.

Business Valuation

Determining the value of a business is complex particularly in today’s uncertain economic environment. Thorough research is critical because a missed detail can change a business valuation substantially.

When hiring an accounting firm to prepare a business valuation, you want a firm that will provide a sound, defensible judgment. BPS has extensive experience in this specialized arena, having completed more than 100 business valuations nationwide for clients in telecommunications, manufacturing, distribution, automobile sales and real estate, to name a few. We offer business valuation services for:

  • Acquisition due diligence
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Estate and gift tax planning
  • Family limited partnerships
  • IRS/tax-related issues
  • Litigation support
  • Mergers
  • Reorganization or recapitalization
  • S-Corporation conversion
  • Stockholder disputes
  • Transfer from one generation of owners/managers to another 

Our approach involves in-depth, comprehensive analysis using relevant market data and sophisticated valuation techniques to ensure an accurate, defensible business valuation. We keep abreast of changes in statutory authority, administrative rulings, and judicial precedent to make sure the valuation complies with legal and professional standards. Our business valuation reports clearly communicate how and why we arrived at the given value. Business valuations conducted by BPS consistently withstand Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scrutiny.
