At Block & Aldinger, CPA’s we specialize in business valuation services. Whether you need to estimate the value of a business for divorce, civil litigation, insurance needs, a merger, or a buy-sell agreement, we’re fully qualified to assist you. We hold both and Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential by the AICPA as well as the Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) credential by NACVA so we uphold the highest standards in determining an accurate an credible value for the business we are engaged in valuing.
Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV)– The Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) Credential positions valuation professionals as the premier business valuation service providers who differentiate themselves by going beyond the core service of reaching a conclusion of value and creating value for clients through the strategic application of this analysis.
The ABV Credential is exclusively granted by the AICPA to qualified CPAs. To earn the ABV Credential, candidates must meet minimum qualification requirements, which are based on successfully passing the ABV Examination and meeting minimum valuation-related business experience and education requirements:
- Hold a valid and unrevoked CPA license or certificate issued by a legally constituted state authority
- Pass the ABV Examination (requirement waived for Accredited Members and Accredited Senior Appraisers of the American Society of Appraisers)
Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA)– The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts™ (NACVA®) trains and certifies CVAs to perform business valuations as a service to both the consulting community and the users of their services. Through training and rigorous testing, CVAs demonstrate they are qualified to provide capable and professionally executed valuation services. NACVA recommends specific training as a prerequisite to certification to assure that practitioners have the knowledge and understanding necessary to perform competent services, and to assure a level of consistency and continuity in their work product. Users of valuation services benefit by having greater confidence that the service they receive is professional in quality, adheres to industry standards of practice, and meets a level of expertise the Association deems credible and worthy of one of its certified members.
