Business Valuation is the process of determining how much a business is worth.
It’s not as simple a question as it first appears. The basic problem of business valuation is how to set a value on all the assets of a business, including the intangibles. How much, for example, is goodwill, a business logo, a trademark, or a client list worth?
There are several different business valuation methods that can be used to tackle the problem and attempt to determine a fair price for the business to be sold.
No one method is the solution for any business; if you use (or your professional valuator) uses a variety of business valuation methods, you’ll have a more accurate idea of just what your business is worth and a range of prices that you can use as parameters for your negotiations, determine value for business succession planning, or to develop options for passing on the business to the next generation.
Because so many factors need to be taken into account, professional assistance of a qualified appraiser is needed. Our staff Certified Valuation Analyst has over ten years of experience to be put to your use for your business.
