Business Valuation by Certified Appraisers

We specialize only in business valuations and are not involved in the sale of the business . Therefore any valuation is done at arm's length without any ulterior motive or potential conflict of interest. A business appraiser's opinion should be totally independent in order to maintain credibility. The appraiser is not an employee nor the advocate or agent of the business being valued.

We value corporations, both Chapter C and S, partnerships and professional practices. Keystone Corporation understands and respects the confidentiality of all information submitted to it and will not disclose such information with out the company's written permission unless as a result of the rule of law or by an order of the court. Keystone serves accountants, tax attorneys and small business owners and will absolutely not be involved in selling your business.
