Are you buying or selling a new car dealership?

Whichever side you are on in a new car dealership buy/sell transaction, an FF&E (Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment) appraisal will help with your negotiations.

The peace of mind in knowing accurate and current values is only one of the benefits a well-organized asset appraisal report will provide.  A current appraisal of the equipment can be a tool to justify the asking price of the business.  If a buyer is looking for a business acquisition loan, the lender will want an appraisal on the equipment for collateral purposes.  Once the buy/sell transaction is complete, a working inventory with complete descriptions will aid with accounting.  This information will provide current Fair Market Values to the equipment which can be used to set up a new asset and depreciation schedule.
