Macon, GA Machinery & Equipment Appraisals – Multiple Approaches to Fit Your Needs

We consider three approaches to value when looking at equipment to determine what it is worth. These include the Market Data Approach, the Cost Less Depreciation Approach and the Income Approach.

The market data approach is when the market value estimate is based upon prices being paid in actual and current market listings.  The latest transactions are examined to determine a probable value.

The cost less depreciation approach is when the current cost of an asset is determined after deducting for functional and economic obsolescence, physical deterioration and depreciation.  It is based on the principle of substitution which asserts that an informed buyer will not pay more for an asset than the cost of an asset that can be replaced with the same function.

The Income approach considers revenue streams in order to determine a present value.  This approach is often difficult to execute since revenue streams for single components cannot be cataloged easily.  However, there are circumstances on occasion where it makes sense to apply the income approach to an equipment appraisal.  Our certified appraisers have the skills to accurately determine which approach to value should be applied to your equipment appraisal.

All of our appraisers have earned their certifications through a prestigious institution known as the NEBB Institute.  The NEBB Institute is an organization that is recognized nationally and globally for their high standards and complete training in the equipment appraisal industry.  Before graduating the program, students must complete a training course, pass a written exam and prepare a sample appraisal report.  The report is then graded by 2 certified appraisers as well as a peer review committee. This methodical preparation has prepared our appraisers to perform expert appraisals that are defensible in any situation.

All of our appraisals are certified, meet the SBA’s SOP Requirements and are compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).  Our certified appraisals have the ability to endure scrutiny from the IRS, Litigation, and Banks.  Whether your appraisal requirements are in Macon, Lizella, Payne, Walden, Sofkee, Franklinton, Avondale or other nearby places, Turner Business Appraisers is prepared to offer accurate, defensible and timely appraisals for your business.
