Tangible asset valuations of real and personal property can help minimize taxes while maximizing valuation. VRC can help with a range of tangible asset valuation in both real property (land, building, leases) and personal property (machinery, equipment, computers, furniture and fixtures, leasehold improvements, etc.). The valuation of real and personal property is important in many business situations, including:
- Tax and financial reporting
- Asset monitoring
- Property insurance
- Ad valorem taxes
- Replacement budgeting
- Mergers & Acquisitions
- Exit planning
When a company wishes to use fixed assets as collateral, VRC can supply valuations of real estate and machinery and equipment, either for the would-be borrower or for a prospective lender. We generate authoritative estimates of the price property might bring if liquidated, under any various hypotheses, or of the amount that might be realized after full market exposure.
For companies involved in leasing transactions and sale-leasebacks, we conduct equipment valuations, real estate valuations and lifing studies.
Machinery & Equipment
Machinery, equipment and other personal property are tangible assets that will affect a company’s valuation. Our personal property specialists can value standard or special-purpose equipment on any of various premises and produce opinions of both current and residual value. In addition to valuations, we can supply opinions of useful life or economic life for assets in lease transactions.
The value of real property, such as real estate, land, buildings and leases, will influence the overall value of a business. Our experts can generate authoritative estimates of the price property may bring if liquidated or amount realized after full market exposure.
