As a business owner, there are several circumstances in which you may need to determine how much your company is worth. The value of a business cannot be determined by the company's financial statements alone. A business's value is dependent on many factors, including its assets, liabilities, profitability, and growth potential. These factors are constantly changing and must be evaluated by a qualified and experienced CPA.
A common misconception people have is that if they haven’t filed taxes in over 10 years, they can file for bankruptcy and not be held responsible for their unpaid taxes. That is not the case. Filing for bankruptcy does not guarantee that your taxes will be discharged, and it can complicate the process of getting back on a positive financial track.
