To see just how growth and change is accelerating in the business valuation profession, take this quick quiz, drawn from the early responses to BVR’s ongoing Firm Economics Survey:
- What percentage of the responding firms have been providing business appraisal services for fewer than 10 years?
- 11% of the firms participating so far are based outside of North America ... but what non-North American country has registered the most responses?
- The most common certification among appraisers currently registered for the survey is the CPA ... but what's second?
- What level of analyst staff are firms hiring most frequently in 2013?
Answers: 37%, Brazil, ASA, junior analysts with little client contact.
For the answers to all your questions regarding BV firm performance, compensation, billing rates, marketing and practice development, practice acquisitions, and partner defections—and more—you’ll first want to first participate in BVR's 2013 Business Valuation Firm Economics & Best Practices Survey, which then saves you $250 off the post-publication price. Hundreds of your BV colleagues have already registered and responded, and you can do the same all at once or in phases, saving your answers if interrupted and returning at your convenience to finish. But hurry: the deadline for participating in the most complete, comprehensive BV-specific survey is April 1, 2013. Get started by clicking here now.
