"As a former Gunderson lawyer, I co-founded Eton to bring the precision, efficiency, and the obsessive client service of corporate securities law to business valuation. I'm especially proud that our worldwide team of Big 4 trained CFAs has adopted that client service mantra wholeheartedly.

Our entire focus is on delivering audit-defensible, rigorous, and timely valuations without the inefficient back-and-forth of other firms. Client service is our religion. We always go the extra mile to overdeliver for every client."

What business service valuations do you provide in Utah?

Eton provides a range of business valuation services for small businesses, family offices, and private equity firms in Utah. We’re a boutique firm, focused on excellent customer service and deep expert advice. View all our business valuation services here.

When conducting business valuations in Utah we consider several local factors that can influence the process.

  1. State Tax Climate: Utah has a relatively favorable tax climate for businesses, including a flat corporate income tax rate. The specific tax obligations of a business can affect its cash flows and net income, which are critical components of most valuation models.

  2. Economic Environment: The overall economic health of Utah, including growth rates, unemployment rates, and industry presence, can influence business valuations. Utah’s economy has diverse sectors such as technology, mining, tourism, and agriculture, each with its own growth prospects and risks.

  3. Local Market Conditions: The demand for certain products or services in Utah, market saturation, and competition levels can affect a business’s profitability and growth potential. For example, a business operating in a high-growth sector like technology in the Silicon Slopes area may be valued differently than businesses in more stable or saturated markets.

  4. Regulatory Environment: Utah’s regulations regarding business operations, environmental compliance, labor laws, and industry-specific regulations can impact operational costs and legal risks for businesses. Compliance with local regulations is a factor that must be accounted for in the valuation process.
