Our business valuations services
Putting a value on a business can be tricky - ultimately any business is worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. That said, there’s a number of accepted methods for valuing businesses, and our experts will use the most appropriate one for you.
Knowing your worth
Your valuation might be based on a multiple of profit and that multiple will depend on the sector your business is in. We’ll also take into account:
- past performance
- future forecasts
- strength of the management team
- quality of customers
- niche products
- intellectual property and much more
Once you have our baseline valuation, we can work together to improve it. It’s also going to be easier and quicker for you to keep an up-to-date valuation than to start from scratch in the future if something happens or time is against you.
Benefits of valuing your business
Incentivising your team is another great reason to value your business. Take a look at our EMI scheme and rewarding your staff ideas. There’s rarely a better way to accelerate your growth and value than sharing that success with your key employees. You can even reorganise your business into different entities with different ownership structures if you want to. Also, if you are raising finance for expansion, lenders may ask for a valuation to benchmark the business against its future value.
Good timing is everything
Typically, a business is only valued when it goes on the market and we think that’s a shame, because by then it’s often too late. If you want to sell your business in a few years’ time, have it valued now. You’ll then have a realistic figure in mind, and we’ve got time to work together if it’s fallen short of your expectations. We can then present your business for sale in the best possible light to maximise its value.
