Why Do You Need to Know the Value of Your Machinery and Equipment?

As a business owner, at one time or another you will be faced with needing to know the value of your machinery or equipment. You can make better decisions, and be prepared to make business decissions regarding financing or legal actions. Your books will be based on certified values rather than educated guesses.

What's Your Machinery or Equipment Really Worth?

What do you do? Guess? Ask a friend? Go by book value? Unfortunately, guessing, friends and book values are risky and inaccurate when you need sound data to make critical business decisions.
