About Josh Horn, CPA/ABV, CVA
How Am I Different?
Few CPAs are business valuation analysts, particularly south of Chicago in Illinois. I hold the Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) and Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) designations from the National Association of Certified Valuators & Analysts and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. These designations are specifically for income determination, business valuation, and damages.
I don’t do taxes, financial statements, or bookkeeping. You get my dedication to helping you with income and valuation as a specialist. You can work with me all year, not just after tax season and I’m available to testify. I rarely have conflicts of interest common to many CPAs.
I will estimate my compensation upfront whenever we work together to define a project. For example, let’s say you want to estimate your client’s after-tax cash available for support. That easy to define and works great. Let’s say you need to estimate the value of a business in your divorce or litigation case. If you have several years of financial documents and we can work together to get key questions answered, we can estimate my compensation here too.
While income and value determinations can be complex, I balance thoroughness with practicality. I solve the problem you need solved in what could be the biggest event in your client’s life. Your client’s budget may be limited so my goal is to help you settle your case, fairly and accurately.
Hits Close to Home
I’ve been through divorce as a young child. It’s awful and the pain can’t be expressed in words. What makes it worse is when the process drags on for months or even years. I can move you through the financial process quickly and effectively so your clients can move on with their lives.
The Stakes are High
After family and children, your case comes down to income and asset values. Critical analysis and judgments can mean a hundred thousand or even a million-dollar impact on your case. I understand that you would be putting your trust as well as your client’s trust in me. I take that very seriously.
Let’s talk and see if I can help you.
