Haas Business Valuation Services Inc.
R. Victor Haas, Jr., ASA, CPA
Haas Business Valuation Services Inc. is well-known and respected in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – New Jersey – Delaware tri-state area for the quality assistance it provides to business owners, attorneys, and other professionals in the areas of business valuation, forensic accounting, and litigation support. Mr. Haas has qualified as an expert witness and has provided testimony at both the federal level and in courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as well as New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
Too often, business valuations are done mechanically, essentially by formula, with no insight by the appraiser. Haas Business Valuation Services doesn’t work this way. Instead, we focus on finding the missing numbers, the hidden transaction, the absent piece of that complex puzzle upon which many business valuations center — and we do this in a manner that is supportable in a court of law or before the Internal Revenue Service. In other words, we get it right. These twin aims — getting behind the numbers and producing legally credible work — set us apart from our competitors.
