Business Valuations

Ultimately businesses will be valued through a process of negotiation between the buyer and the seller. There isn't a single right answer, valuation isn't an exact science.

The main reasons to value a business are:

  • Incorporation of a sole trader or partnership
  • Divorce
  • Probate
  • Internal reward systems
  • Sale of the business or part sale
The valuation process will encompass information such as

  • Financial Accounts
  • Management Accounts
  • Budgets
  • Forecasts
  • Details of liabilities
  • Asset Valuations
  • Market Analysis
  • Client Contracts
  • Staff information and records
  • SWOT analysis
Goodwill is often the hardest part to value.

The main Valuation approaches are
  • Adjusted Net Assets plus Good or Bad Will
  • Using Muliples
  • Discounted Cash Flow
