Business valuation is more an art than a science. Valuation approaches and goals vary depending on whether a business is valued for tax or estate purposes versus sale to an independent third party. Valuation experts often consider the business’s revenue, cash flow, assets, industry, and local market conditions and trends to formulate an opinion.
For small to mid-sized companies, we can offer you a free market value opinion based on our small business valuation tools. Please keep in mind our affiliates are not accredited business evaluators. For larger businesses, we’ll help you work with a variety of professional third party business valuation firms to obtain a detailed analysis. While third party valuation firms charge clients for services, professional valuations carry more credibility with bankers and buyers, and often help minimize price negotiation.
