Business Advisory Services

We provide proactive and strategic guidance at each stage, for each transaction.

Business Advisory

You have questions, we have answers. Let us help you achieve your goals.

Accountants, business partners, guides, coaches. We’re all of these things and then some. We’re here to get you from point A to point Z as efficiently and effectively as possible by understanding how numbers turn into strategies, and how those strategies are used to expand your operations, acquire new business and more. 

Managing the day-to-day activity of a business is demanding, but business owners and managers must set aside time to plan for what’s next. Corrigan Krause assists business leaders in this important process. Our strategic planning solutions deliver valuable insight at every stage of your business development including growth planning, strategies to overcome challenges, risk management, and establishing systems and checks for accountability and measurement.

We take a hands-on approach to customizing a plan for your company. This means you get an honest assessment of the competitive landscape and your specific advantages and weaknesses combined with benchmarking that’s appropriate for your industry. Then we work with you to use that information to improve your performance, overall profitability, and operating efficiency, taking your business from just running to running optimally.

Merger and Acquisition Advisory

So you found an opportunity that seems to be the perfect fit for your business? Let us do the leg work. We can ease some of your homework by assessing tax issues, corporate compatibilities and the financial impact this may have on your business. 

There are many benefits and reasons to be on the lookout for a merger or acquisition opportunity. The right fit may enhance cost efficiency, increase your market share or help your business achieve greater value. But without doing your due diligence and assessing the situation before buying, selling or merging, you may end up in the middle of a bad deal.

We’ll work with both buyer and seller, ultimately ensuring you make the right decision for your company and both parties are happy with the results. It is our goal to improve your odds of success.

Business Succession Planning

The time to consider your business succession plan is before you need to make the transition. With our proactive approach, we’ll help coordinate a seamless and grounded transition of your role or company.

A business succession plan identifies your personal plans for your business, the financial needs of your family and protects your assets and estate in the event of death or disability. By identifying future roles and responsibilities, you can reduce the strain on your business and the stress on your employees when the time comes to transition. 

Give your investors, lenders, customers, employees, family and yourself the long-term confidence they deserve.

Business Valuations

The Value of Your Business: Then and Now

Understanding the bargaining power of your business as well as the financial worth of an asset, transaction or your entire organization is critical to business operations. Know where you stand.

Valuations matter for a myriad of reasons. Looking to buy or sell your business? The opposing party will care about your business valuation. Estate or gift planning? You need to know what you’re worth. 

Corrigan Krause will assess where you stand and determine opportunities and actions to put your business in the best position to negotiate. We’ll identify risks as well as your tangible and intangible assets, all to help you plan for, prepare for and ultimately make crucial decisions.
