Thank you for your participation in this vital survey!
Your answers to the Business Valuation and Forensic Litigation Services (BVFLS) Firm Economics & Best Practices Survey will contribute to the most comprehensive picture of the management practices of the BVFLS profession available. Sponsored by Business Valuation Resources (BVR), this survey builds upon previous iterations dating back to 2007, showing us where we’ve come from, where we are, and where we’re going.
BVR conducts this survey regularly to help BVFLS professionals benchmark and improve their practice management.
All responses are confidential, but we will provide you an opportunity at the end of the survey to sign up to receive the results. The deadline to be included is October 19, 2018 but (given the human propensity to procrastinate and perhaps forget) please do start right away.
We've separated this questionnaire into nine topical sections, each focused on a separate area of practice management during 2017/2018—or on the most recent financial year for which you have information available. Answer as many questions as you can, but feel free to skip any item that does not apply to your firm. Only those questions marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
You don’t have to finish the survey all in one go. To pause and return later, just be sure to click NEXT at the bottom of the section you are working on so your answers will be saved, and continue on the same computer. Please note: If you need to change an answer after you have clicked NEXT, please do not hit the BACK button on your browser. Rather, please click the PREVIOUS button from the survey itself.
If you have any questions (or suggestions to make the survey better), please contact the publisher, Sarah Andersen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All participants who register at the end of this survey will receive a free Executive Summary of the survey results and a significant discount on the full results.
Your participation also qualifies you to be entered into a drawing to receive a free one-year subscription to BVResearch Pro (www.bvresources.com/bvresearch), BVR's most comprehensive library of business valuation resources (a $1,595 value)
Now, let's get started! The first section collects basic information about your business valuation practice.
