A Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraiser’s professional credentials will withstand a Daubert challenge.
Don’t relying on something other than a Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisal giving your opposition an advantage.
Our appraisals are an accurate, irrefutable, defensible value of machinery and equipment. It is a report consistent with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), promulgated by Congress.
It is what you need to prevail before the IRS, courts, lenders, attorneys, CPAs and others. In fact, there is a chance that IRS could disallow a filing because there is not a Certified Appraisal Report that substantiates equipment values.
If the appraisal report you obtain is not USPAP compliant, it is not a “qualified” appraisal prepared by a “qualified” appraiser pursuant to the Council of Foundations, IRS, or others and it will not hold up to scrutiny with the IRS, courts, or lenders.
Cost of an Appraisal
The cost of a certified machinery & equipment appraisal varies depending on the number of items needed to be appraised. After we have a conversation and receive a depreciation schedule or detailed asset list, we will be able to quote you a fee for the appraisal.
