Appraisers who have obtained the accreditation Accredited in Appraisal Review (ABAR) from The Institute of Business Appraisers or Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) in Appraisal Review and Management from the American Society of Appraisers have a heightened focus on professional responsibility in their and others’ practices. They are considered “Experts’ Experts” and are able to articulate the elements of business valuation reports that credibly meet the required professional practice standards. Such appraisers are able to constructively criticize the oral and written testimony of other business valuation experts in order to help triers of fact and juries reach appropriate verdicts.
A business appraisal review comments on matters such as the appropriateness of the valuation assumptions made, methods used, conclusions reached, and compliance with professional analysis and communication standards as well as numerous other factors that speak to appraisal quality. A business appraisal review does not include an opinion of value.
ABA’s professionals can provide rebuttal testimony regarding the opinions of opposing experts and others concerning the values of business interest. This service is available on an independent (non-advocacy) basis or on a consulting (advocacy) service basis.
If you are in need of a business appraisal review, please contact one of American Business Appraisers National Network’s appraisers who are accredited in business appraisal review to discuss your situation and how we can be of assistance.
