Business owners, attorneys, bankers, bank examiners, CPA’s, and courts ask the same question : “What’s it really worth? Is there goodwill? Do only the tangible assets of your business have value? If so, how are those assets valued? Book value (not accurate), or worse yet, do you guess or take a non-certified person’s word?

Estimating the true market value of your machinery and equipment at any given time requires the specialized skills of a professional who has the expertise and certification to determine its true fair market value. Whether you need to know the market value or other standards of value such as liquidation value, salvage value or replacement cost, doesn’t it make sound financial sense to obtain a credible Certified Appraisal Report that holds up under scrutiny with financial institutions, government agencies, buyers, sellers, shareholders or partners?

A Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (CMEA) is a professional who has the training, knowledge, experience and background to render a Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraisal Report. All CMEA professionals receive extensive continuous training on a monthly basis and are subject to peer review on a regular basis. Only after a professional passes a comprehensive written examination and submits a demonstration appraisal is that individual awarded the prestigious professional designation of CMEA by the NEBB Institute. In addition, the professional is required to re-certify every five years.

More importantly, a CMEA is required to observe the highest standards of professional ethics and comply with regulations mandated by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Only the skills of a CMEA professional make sound financial business sense to determine an accurate and appropriate value.
