Business Valuations*

What’s the Value of Your Business?

Understanding your business’ value is the key ingredient to undertaking a host of strategic activities and decisions. It is the elephant-in-the-room question for many business owners.

Surprisingly, 75% of the 200 million small businesses in the world don’t know what they are worth. The Small Business Association in the U.S. (where 30 million SMBs are located) says this is one of the two main challenges companies and their owners face. The question remains why do so few organizations lack—and fail to track—this critical piece of information?

In the past, it was very expensive to get a business valuation. The average offline business valuation can cost around $8,000. The price alone turns off most small business owners. More over, traditional valuations would take many weeks, and potentially several months. With the help of technology and years of business valuation experience, online business valuation tools, like the one we offer on our site, have made access to this information easily accessible for small business owners.

Reasons You Should Have A Business Valuation

A business valuation is a process and a set of procedures that are used to estimate the economic value of an owner’s interest in a business. A business valuation is used by financial market participants to determine the price someone should pay or receive to effect a sale of the business.

The main reasons you should have a business valuation:

  • Better understand your business and its potential
  • Plans to sell your business
  • Know the value of your largest asset in order to properly plan your retirement
  • Structure Buy/Sell Agreements with business partners
  • Ensure your business and family are properly protected
  • Consider funding opportunities
  • Plan for the future of your business with a qualified succession plan
  • Buy a business
  • Prepare for taxable events such as gifting or grants
