With Northern Plains Business Advisors, you can make adjustments over time that will boost your businesses total value prior to putting it on the market.


Management and Planning

Business management and various strategic planning programs. Because a business appraisal assesses the risks and profitability of the business, the business appraisal is recognized as a superior management tool and is an integral component of several management-related programs such as:

  • Exit strategy planning
  • Monitoring the efficiency of long-range planning programs
  • Measuring the business’s ability to create value.

Ownership Changes

The business appraisal is a detailed process that establishes a value for a business at a specific point in time. The appraisal is an important and highly informative initial step for any type of transfer of ownership, such as:


  • Business sale transactions
  • Associate buy-ins
  • Partnership buy-ins
  • Merging two businesses

Other Situations

While performing business appraisals for transaction purposes remains the primary reason for appraisals, there are other non-asset transferring reasons which require an appraisal, such as:
  • Tax court disputes
  • Legal procedures—marital dissolution, partnership disputes, etc.
