Business Valuation

How much is your business (or the one you want to buy) actually worth?

Finding a reliable basis for business valuation

Putting a value on a business you own or one you’re looking to buy can be a challenge. There are a number of approaches to take to arrive at a figure to begin negotiations. The ultimate value of a business of course, is how much someone is willing to pay for it.

Some things to be considered for a business valuation include:

  • Urgency of sale - if the owner is looking for an urgent sale due to a personal situation the price is likely more negotiable.
  • Calculation of assets - some businesses have physical assets like property and machinery. Others may have few physical assets but have a strong brand, reputation or hold substantial Intellectual property.
  • Years in business - A business that has shown consistent profits over many years with repeat business may be more valuable than one in business only one or two years.
  • Industry - some industries by their nature have growth and decline cycles to consider
