Due Diligence - Business Valuations
The firm helps clients to determine the true value of the business being sold, or purchased. By and large, knowing the real value of a business is the single most important transactional information. However, many owners fail to confirm the true value of their businesses being sold or purchased. While every seller hopes to maximize transaction's profitability, setting the price too high, or too low, could signal inexperience and confusion, which frequently proves to be quite costly.
Due Diligence - Buyer Screening
No doubt, purchasing or selling of a business requires knowledge of the true value of the attached real estate, equipment or intellectual property. But when selling your business, equally important is the knowledge of the buyer's financial abilities. STEVEN IVY P.C. answers these questions by performing effective due diligence verifications. The firm also screens the potential buyers for their ability to complete the transaction. We ensure that all potential buyers sign the required confidentiality agreements, and provide all the necessary information confirming the reliability of their claims and promises.

STEVEN IVY P.C. helps clients realize the optimum return on their transaction, by minimizing any applicable tax burdens. We help our clients to structure and negotiate deals, that reduce taxation and position their businesses for future success.
