What is a Business Valuation?

Business valuation tips

What do we require from you for us to perform a Business Valuation?

We will provide you with a Letter of Engagement outlining the process, then obtain a full information brief including financial history and documentation.

What is Market Value?

Market value is the value of an asset according to how that asset would be transacted in normal market conditions. It is often defined as the price at which a willing but not anxious buyer and a willing but not anxious seller would do a deal over the transfer of a particular asset. The valuer will be looking for good data and using all his or her experience in arriving at the value of that asset in consideration of the evidence. Above all, it is an opinion about a potential transaction at the date of the valuation.

What to look for in a Business Valuer?

A reliable Business Valuer should
– Have undertaken a course of study
– Be able to prove considerable experience in valuing businesses of the type under consideration
– Have access to and use evidence to support the expert opinion

Why get professional business valuation

What does it mean for a Business Valuation to be independent?
A business valuation is an opinion as to what price a business will change hands for in market conditions. It is not what one or other party wants it to be. There are valuations done to arrive at something other than market value but these are not always independent.

How to value my business 

What is the Income Approach to Business Valuation?

Using the income approach, the valuer is expressing an opinion as to the value of the business at a particular date, based on an assessment of future income. Then the valuer will assess the risk of that future income being maintainable post hypothetical transaction and assess what return on investment (multiplier) should be applied considering that risk

What is the Cost Approach to Business Valuation?

The cost approach will be used by a business valuer when the value of the assets of the business would be worth more than the value of the business if an income method was applied.

This involves valuing the assets in one of three ways:
* Fire sale (urgent)
* Quick sale
* Ordinary sale (often when the assets are sold as a whole)

Obviously, the value would be higher for a quick sale and higher still for an ordinary sale. An ordinary sale would normally involve valuing the business assets on a going concern basis

What is the Multiplier and Return on Investment

These are two ways of looking at the same concept. If a business valuer assesses that the RISK of potential earnings been maintained into the future is high then that valuer will apply a smaller multiple to the earnings. Let’s say that valuer chooses a multiple of two. Then return on investment sought is 50%. If the multiple were three the return on investment sought would be 33.3%.

Heidi Dening Testimonials - Work with BCI Business Brokers
I sold my business for the price, terms and hand-over that I wanted, and it was all because of Tony. His decades of experience and excellent people skills gave me confidence, reassurance and guidance throughout the entire process. He had a very clear system on what was the best method to sell my business and from start to finish he was the expert in every way. It wasn’t till after I had started the process that I realised that I could never have done this by myself, without completely losing the plot!!! His honesty and trustworthiness completely relieved the stress and pressure, and I couldn’t recommend him enough.
