How can I evaluate and optimize the market value of my business?
There are many ways to ensure your business is valued accurately. However, the key is to employ a professional team that is familiar with both you and your business, in lieu of a generic business appraiser. After building your business with care, you deserve to get the best possible price for your company, including material assets, as well as any intangibles that are important to you. We can help you with determining the value of various assets, like customer lists, equipment, non-competes, etc. The Granite team of professionals can help make the entire process more efficient and obtain the highest purchase possible.
How do I plan for the succession of my business interest and design a proper exit strategy?
Someone once said, "Begin with the end in mind". Whether you started with a succession plan in the beginning, or you want to develop one late in the game, it's always smart to initiate this important step. To most entrepreneurs, building a legacy is just as important as building the business itself. The Granite team is uniquely positioned to assist in this emotionally-laden task. Being the detached third party, the Granite team can assist you in getting things accomplished that could possibly not be approached by an insider. Let us help you remove this burdensome assignment from your task list.
What is the best benefit plan package for my business?
Benefits such as health insurance, dental, vision and 401k are important to you and your employees. Through our sister firm, Granite Benefits, we are able to develop a cost-effective benefits package for your employees that will increase employee retention, while reducing your overall benefits costs. We will provide you with the best plan options, as well as help you and your employees understand the various tax implications of cafeteria plans and other exciting new payroll options. Serving many companies in several industries, Granite Benefits has the tools to set your company on the right course.
