CPAs: Expand your Practice with Value Creation
Let’s face it, financial audits and tax preparation are becoming increasingly commoditized. Clients increasingly see these services as transactional and continue to put more price pressure on the firms they work with.
Incorporating exit planning services into your practice creates another way to create value for your clients and earn your trusted advisor status, but you’ll need help to get there.
CPAs have unique visibility into their client’s business practices and financial records—and as a result are perfectly positioned to turn that insight into long-term value creation with the right tool.
Value Scout’s Value Recon Algorithm™ takes financial data and assigns an accurate value to each initiative in just a few clicks, making it easier than ever to reach your value milestones and gain momentum toward your value creation targets.
If you’re new to Exit Planning, you may be anxious to get the ball rolling with new clients. Value Scout’s free assessment tool allows CPAs to find good-fit leads, foster client relationships, and gauge interest in exit planning quickly and easily.
Leverage our assessments through your own personal portal, and start every new business conversation with a meaningful discussion about value. Join a community of like-minded peers to network and share deal flow.
Let’s be honest, who has time for that 50-page valuation questionnaire? Value Scout is bringing traditional business valuation into the 21st century, starting with a cloud-based value assessment.
More importantly, Value Scout pinpoints the gap between what the business is worth now, what your client needs it to be worth to retire, and suggestions for how to close the gap. It’s the ideal tool to complement your traditional accounting services.

Understanding the value of your business is critical especially when you’re planning for the next phase — be it to merge, sell, raise capital, or even simply to convert the organization from C-Corp status to S-Corp status for tax purposes. Naturally, we pay most attention to the first two.
Business owners can gain great negotiating power by maximizing the value of their business long before taking it to the market. The key to improving business value is to understand what buyers look for in a company.
