Our team provides a variety of services, including business valuations, gift valuations and estate valuations. When it comes to determining a business appraisal, we look beyond the historical numbers. We take into consideration, among other things, an entity’s industry and economic outlook, the skill of management and the company’s workforce, a company’s stature in its market, and its competition. Members of the BSSF valuation team have the training, credentials, experience, and analytical skills necessary to provide a carefully constructed and well thought out valuation report. Our breadth of work serves many parts of the Mid-Atlantic region with a large focus in Central Pennsylvania and Maryland.

BSSF is a member of the Financial Consulting Group (FCG), a national network of recognized business valuation and litigation support specialists. With a membership of over 80 business valuation and financial consulting firms, this strategic alliance gives us access to unlimited professional resources and supports our ability to provide enhanced technical and consulting expertise to clients.

Rigorous Professional Standards

Our business valuation specialists have met the rigorous professional standards required to earn credentials from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (CPA/ABV) and the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (CVA) and annually enhance their skills by attending valuation training offered by FCG, the AICPA, and NACVA.

BSSF’s experienced professionals provide client support options ranging from an oral discussion of a reasonable range of values to a comprehensive, fully documented written report that would be defensible in court or with the IRS. Our reports are written so that non valuation professionals can understand them.

We have valued a wide variety of sizes and types of businesses, including family limited partnerships, for diverse purposes including:

  • Mergers/Acquisitions
  • Marital Dissolution
  • Buy/Sell Agreements
  • Succession Planning
  • Estate Planning
  • Shareholder Disputes
  • Economic Loss
