Why you need to know the Value of your Machinery and Equipment


As a business owner, at one time or another you will be faced with needing to know what your machinery/equipment is really worth. A bank, CPA, attorney, court, IRS, and others all require a USPAP compliant, substantiated Certified Equipment Appraisal...buyers will certainly ask for substantiated value when time comes to sell your business. If your appraisal is prepared by anyone other than a "qualified" appraiser preparing a "qualified appraisal", your appraisal will not hold up to scrutiny required by governmental authorities, lenders, CPAs, attorneys, courts, and others!


A Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (CMEA) gives you an independent substantiated, irrefutable, and USPAP compliant report you can rely upon with confidence.


A CMEA professional has the expertise, certification and knowledge to conduct an independent third party machinery/equipment appraisal. Therefore, the value of an item is substantiated and reflects the realistic true market value of an item. In addition, each CMEA abides by the regulations and ethics of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.


Why would you need the professional services of a CMEA?


Sellers need to know that they are not selling too low or pricing their machinery or equipment above the fair market value. Buyers want to know that they are not paying too much to purchase the machinery / equipment. In addition, for allocation purposes, the IRS requires buyers and sellers to agree on the value of tangible assets involved with a business transfer. They must "allocate" a particular value for tangible assets as well as goodwill.


Rely on the expertise of a CMEA (Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser). It makes logical prudent business sense and reduces your risk of liability!
