Knowing the value of their business is vital for business owners to assess value creation, benchmark progress in strategic initiatives, and prepare for their eventual exit. At Boyce & Associates, we provide several levels of certified business appraisal for various needs. We perform business appraisals for mergers, partner buyouts, family and estate issues such as death/divorce, as well as for tax issues.
We are members of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA), and our work is governed by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)
Executive Benefits & Advanced Planning
Boyce & Associates recognizes the issues business owners face with regard to recruiting, retaining, and rewarding key employees, as well as the risk inherent in losing those employees. We also understand that business owners seek to maximize long-term income and get the most out of their business. We offer consultation and custom plan design for so-called Section 162 Executive Bonus Plans, Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERPs), and other non-qualified plans which can be targeted to either specific individuals or classes of individuals for very distinct reasons, at relatively low cost and far less onerous filing and compliance requirements.
In a tight labor market, a competitive benefits package is essential to recruiting and retaining the talent needed to grow a business. At the center of a good benefits program is the qualified retirement plan. The team at Boyce & Associates assists business owners with plan design and implementation across the entire spectrum of qualified plans, including 401(k), SIMPLE IRA, SEP IRA, or Defined Benefit Pension Plans.
Research by the Exit Planning Institute indicates that business owners actually spend very little time on succession or exit planning, resulting in an eventual exit which falls well short of expectations or results in considerable loss of value. This important process should address several logical questions, including an owner’s goals and objectives, the potential for internal and external acquisition candidates, and the current and future state of the business cycle. Considerations for multi-generational or family run businesses are even more nuanced. These are questions that every business owner asks. Our team can help you understand the value of planning ahead, and we will help design an exit strategy for you.
