The competitive nature of today's business climate, combined with the expanding needs of business enterprise, place upon the business advisor daunting challenges to provide the best tax, accounting, and advisory services possible—a challenging task to say the least. They must wear multiple hats, and even if one's focus is purely tax, accounting, or both, business owners expect counsel on how to improve performance by shaving costs, increasing revenues, and growing company value.

Nowadays, it is common knowledge that the most substantial asset in a business owner's portfolio is likely the business itself. And it stands to reason that growing its value translates into a more comfortable retirement. Every business advisor should have basic training in the fundamentals of valuing business enterprises. Even if you do not intend to specialize in this area, this training is crucial to being a solid and valued business advisor.
