But, Do I Have to Hire an Appraiser?
The SBA SOP requires a 3rd Party valuation if the transaction meets a number of criteria. Specifically, if the deal is:
- A “change of ownership”
- And has goodwill value exceeding $250,000 OR
- Is a “close transaction” (think between family members or business partners)
Then a valuation is absolutely required.

The SBA SOP also sets forth several requirements for what is considered an approved appraiser. Quantive meets these requirements. Those stipulations state that the appraiser must amongst other things be fully engaged in the performance of valuations and be a credentialed valuation professional.
