Santora CPA Group understands that business valuations are not a one-size-fits-all commodity. Every company is unique, and the reasons for obtaining a valuation are varied. Whether it’s time to sell your business and retire, bring on a new partner, or deal with disputes among the owner group, the need to have an accurate value of your business is directly tied to the fact that your individual and business relationships and goals are constantly changing. Providing a proper valuation requires obtaining a thorough understanding of your business and working directly with you to ensure that the value derived is realistic and meets the needs of your particular situation.
For over 30 years, we have helped privately held and family-owned businesses in a wide variety of industries with their valuation needs. Whether the purpose is selling your business, negotiating a buy/sell agreement, filing gift and estate tax returns, succession planning, or any number of other situations, we have the technical knowledge, expertise, and objectivity to help. Our team prides itself on working closely with business owners and helping them understand the factors that impact the value of their business. At the end of the process, you’ll be surprised at what you have learned about your business. Through it all, we will be Right, By Your Side.

For many businesses and organizations, occupational fraud could be a reality—negatively affecting your bottom line. The key to dealing with fraud is to focus on prevention. It is less expensive and more effective to prevent fraud than to detect it.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ (ACFE) 2016 Report to the Nation on Occupational Fraud and Abuse estimates that the typical organization loses 5% of its annual revenue to fraud. In addition, the report highlights that internal controls alone are not sufficient to fully prevent fraud and that fraud will last a median of 18 months before being detected, with losses rising as the duration increases.
Santora CPA Group can provide services designed to help your organization detect and prevent occupational fraud. Our fraud prevention and detection engagements are managed by an experienced Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) with expertise in fraud detection and deterrence, financial transactions and fraud schemes, investigation, and the law.
Our services include:
You can be assured that we will be Right, By Your Side through every step of the process.

Businesses, like people, have lifecycles. There is a beginning, a middle, and an eventual end. People can eat healthy and exercise to extend their lives. Businesses, on the other hand, deal with many issues like changes in technology, customer needs, and the current leadership’s health that can bring an abrupt end to what owners spend their working-lives building.
Most leaders of closely held businesses either grapple with these issues every day or, worse, ignore them for too long and have no definitive exit plan. This is where formal and timely succession planning, led by the experts of Santora CPA Group, can help.
